I have experienced 2 black screens in the middle of a web session (editing in google docs) in the past two days. (Just installed PCLinuxOS 2010 Gnome a few days ago.) I thought everything was fine, then suddenly, nothing.
Yesterday it at least gave me a message. Something to the effect of "Trying to configure Server: Yes/No Exit or something like that.
I love the idea of linux, just can't afford to have that happen, or invest tons of time getting it stable.
Any ideas on things to try to troubleshoot the installation? I have 10 GB / partition, 8 GB /home and 1 GB swap on an old JetBook with 512 K RAM and Windows XP dual boot.
Thanks in advance.
