Ok, I just conquered my gdm issues in a previous thread, and now I'm finding that gentoo is crashing on me! Twice so far, gentoo has crashed at fairly inappropriate times. I've used gentoo before, and not once has it crashed meaninglessly. First, I think I was listing a directory, and it totally froze, and then the second time I was unzipping a bzipped archive of the latest kernel sources and it came to a dead halt. I had to hard reboot the machine, it wasn't fun. I'm starting to get worried, especially since if it can't handle a little
tar.bz2 file, then it certainly can't emerge anything. I'm sure you'll be wanting some logs, and I'll get them to you next time I boot gentoo. I've got 2 gig of RAM, and a dual core processor, so those aren't the problem, and my hard drive has plenty of free space (talking gigs here), so that's not it either. It sounds like it's something really obvious that I'm overlooking, but I don't understand how it could just stop. Even the normal clicking associated with the processor "thinking" just halts. Isn't that weird?
