Waaaay back before Christmas I was asking about possible causes for my SuSE
install on my laptop continually generating seg faults.
One suggestion was dodgy memory, so I ran memtest-86 overnight (26 full
cycles) and it didn't turn up a thing, so I guess that's not the problem.
My next plan is to mess about with the BIOS settings (ram timings, clock
multipliers etc. . .) and see if that has any effect.
Meanwhile I tried to install RH6.1 and failed miserably. I generated a
PCMCIA bootdisk and started off. The first time it presented me with a
list of the partitions on the hard drive and also FTP and NFS as sources
for the install - no CD. Second time I booted with the exact same disk I
only got the hd partitions. Weird since it was the same boot disk. SuSE
had no problem identifying the CD. Anyway, does anyone in the city centre
(St. Stephens Green area) have any alternative distributions I could try ?
