I love PCLinuxOS. I think its awesome - been running it for about 2 moths now (after a switch from gentoo). Everything is so nice and easy that its great.

But - i've had the system lock up on me. I don't mean windows style lock up, where its partially responding - i mean aboslutely complete stop. Does anyone else have this problem?

Yes, it's called a "frozen X",

Yes, it's called a "frozen X", which means the X server is not responding. I think it happens more often with ATI graphics cards, especially if you use the proprietary ATI driver. If you are not into 3-D games, you are better off with the opensource drivers. I've also found that installing the proprietary driver with the ATI installer works better than installing it from Synaptic. A little tip: Don pull off the plug, press ALT-PrintScreen and then, one after the other, while holding those keys (you'll need both hands) r, e, i, s, u, b. That will tell Linux to reboot cleanly.
