Time Event
Hrmm, wondering if anyone can suggest anything here... I don't know how to troubleshoot Linux, what with me being a Windows emigrant and having lived in the Windows world for years upon years, while only a few months in Linux. I'm running Redhat 7.3 and it's the firewall for the rest of my network. Everything will work fine until a few hours after I started it up, when one of my users reports that the internet is "going slow" and things are timing out on them. I check it out on my end, things are slow too. In addition to that, I can't start any new processes (!) -- I can't even shut the sys down cleanly by using the menus or by switching to a different terminal and logging in to reboot. I've tried killing X, to close down all the processes launched within it, in case I did something funky, but killing X just gives me a blank screen, no terminal prompt or anything. I have to reboot, and when I do, my internet connection is speedy once again, my users are happy, and I can launch new processes.... until it happens again, a few hours later.

I have no idea how to troubleshoot this, anybody have any suggestions? Thanks.
Unable to output laptop to monitor
I am using Fujitsu E-7010 laptop, with ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 32MB DDR-RAM (32 bit) on a 14.1 SXGA+ TFT 1600x1280 / 16 M Colours / 85Hz. I am having problems displaying my output to an ordinary monitor. When I rebooted my laptop, I can see the bios output on my monitor. After grub, it just poof and no more display. Anyone having the same problems? I have not had this kind of problems with other laptops like Compaq or Mitac, so I am kind of stuck. I would really appreciate any advice. Thanks in advanced.

Current Mood: annoyed
