http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi Guys, I have an old PC that I need to use to do work on. It has some decent specs (P4 with 1GB RAM). The thing is after a few minutes or a few hours after boot, the machine completely locks up. I have a feeling it has something to d with the video, but I'm not sure as I don't know where to go to check the logs. Plus since opensuse 11.2 has no xorg.conf, I can't change to vesa. Here is the output for lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE/PE DRAM Controller/Host-Hub Interface (rev 03) 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 03) 00:1d.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) USB UHCI Controller #1 (rev 02) 00:1d.1 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) USB UHCI Controller #2 (rev 02) 00:1d.2 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) USB UHCI Controller #3 (rev 02) 00:1d.7 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-M) USB2 EHCI Controller (rev 02) 00:1e.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82801 PCI Bridge (rev 82) 00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL (ICH4/ICH4-L) LPC Interface Bridge (rev 02) 00:1f.1 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 82801DB (ICH4) IDE Controller (rev 02) 00:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) SMBus Controller (rev 02) 00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02) 01:00.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c590 10BaseT [Vortex] 01:02.0 Modem: Intel Corporation FA82537EP 56K V.92 Data/Fax Modem PCI (rev 04) 01:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB PRO/100 VE (LOM) Ethernet Controller (rev 82) Its the INTEL 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE that I see gives other people gripe on other sites. Can anyone assist me. P.S. I really would like NOT to use vesa. I have a 20Inch screen so vesa sucks. rotfl! (Distributions)
