I am new to lunix Mint, but not new to linux. I've been trying to install Fedora core 10, OpenSuse 11.1, Kubuntu 8.10 and now Mint 6 in my compaq Presario A900.
The laptop has 2.5GB RAM, Integrated Intel graphics, Intel sound (based on linux) Conexant Sound (based on Windows) and a Atheros wifi.
Every distro installed without problems. The main issue is that randomly, linux freezes while doing anything. Mostly while changing windows using Alt+Tab with some compiz effect. BTW compiz works awesome on Mint on this laptop.
I dont think is a hardware issue because the laptop works fine on Vista Ultimate and XP. I do want to keep Mint as is the distro I liked the most.
Any help is appreciated!!
EDIT: CTRL+ALT+backspace wont work or ALT+F1 as everything freezes except the mouse. The only alternative is to do a hard reset.
