Posted by rancam on Dec. 10 2005,01:35I have been trying to figure out why my machine is crashing when I press shutdown or just try to exit a window manager. I reinstalled a hard drive install of DSL 2.0 or 2.1 (both do the same thing) and checked its operation during each application from mydsl I installed.
After each file was installed I tried to exit the window manager and shutdown. As soon as I installed the GTK2 portion I was unable to exit or shutdown, I get a solid blue screen. (I thought only windows had a blue screen of death). I pressed every keyboard combination I can figure out and nothing happens and I need to turn off the machine to get it to reboot. From what I see it tends to mess up linux alot when you do this.
My machine is a thinkpad 600e, p22 366, 167mb of ram. Everything works great except this shutdown issue.
Any help on this is greatly appreciated,
