    Need some expert Linux assistance. I just installed Suse 9.2 and have been plagued with x windows freezing constantly. It will always freeze whenever I try to install an RPM using Yast. Almost like clockwork, I'll click on an RRM, it will start downloading, and then freeze. Only way to recover is a manual reboot. I'll try again and same problem, same place.

    I'll also get freezing when opening any games or opening Konquorer in multiple windows. I have performed all the updates available. Any suggestions?

    tried control-alt-backspace (to kill the xsession?)

    To discover what is causing the problem, try manualling installing an rpm. (from the command line)
