Had an odd experience. I have a Toshiba L355 laptop with Vista that I keep around for those inevitable times I need Windows for something. It has always worked perfectly, but is seldom used.
Anyway, I decided to see how it would run under PCLOS, so I threw in my trusty PCLOS 2011.6 KDE CD (which I know is good - I have installed with it 2 or 3 times) and everything seemed fine.
It booted as usual, I brought up PCC and set up the wireless connection just fine, and exited PCC. That's where things went bad - after I exited PCC, nothing would run, no response to any icons or menu entries. No Firefox, no Konquerer, no terminal, no Dolphin, nothing. Simply did not respond. No wobbly icon in the panel as it tried to start, nothing. Not even PCC, which I had just run...
I could get it to shutdown though, and restarted it in Windows to make sure nothing had broken. As far as I can tell, nothing has.
This is simple curiosity more than anything else - anyone have an idea what could make it act like that?
