I ran the Mint Debian live dvd on one of my desktop computers for several hours on Monday without a single hitch and again today with no issues. Everything worked fine and was fast and very responsive. Today I downloaded the Mint 9 gnome dvd iso. It ran on the same desktop for maybe 20 seconds and froze up solid. No keyboard or mouse response. I had to manually turn off the computer then restarted it with the same freeze up.
Is there that much difference between the two OS's that one works but the other won't. Or is it my graphics card (see below)??.
If it is the graphics card would it also freeze up with say XFCE, LXDE, or other??
By the way: Mint 9 KDE runs on this machine with no problems whatsoever..
