Thanks for the replies,
|How are you running DSL?|
Currently I am running Redhat 6.2 because that seems to be pretty stable for this computer but when I had DSL-N installed, I had a hard drive installation with LILO boot if that is what you are asking.
|You can check your video card/chipset by running System Stats or via console with `lspci -v`|
I ended up in setup and found my video card there: nVidia Riva TN2 Model 64.
Not sure about "mydsl" that you refer to. I searched on the website here a bit but didn't find it.
|You could also try a full x server (see mydsl) which may have a specific driver for your video hardware (or even those different tinyx servers - probably better to figure out what video system you have first though).|
Consider me a Linux newbie, when you say X, you mean the GUI right? That is where the freezing takes place.
|For the freezing, does it happen only in X? Could be related to your video problem. Or maybe it might be something easily set in your BIOS|
It is possible that I had some bad RAM. Just today, the puter was going back and for recognizing 64 Meg, then at next bootup 128, then 64. I ended up pulling out one of the 64 Meg sticks and putting in a 32 Meg stick in it's place so now I have a total of 96 Meg of RAM.
This old version of Redhat is pretty stable but there are some things I want to try with newer software. This was my first audio recording computer and at 16 bit 44.1 Mhz, and Win 95, I was able to do some decent, (at least in my own opinion), recordings so I thought I would try it with Linux. I have faster computers that I use for most of my recording stuff but using an audio recording program is the most fun way for me to learn Linux.
Thanks for your help ^thehatsrule^ and curaga
