You may get more responses if you say specifically what task you are doing when the crash happens.

thks, it hang in diferents zones, first with mint install (when i want to download a pic), then with virtualbox (setting up a virtual manchine), and the last hang with gnome applets (moving applets ).
Any idea?

ok i solved, the problem was the dram config at bios (why in xp and ubuntu 8.10 works ok?) i change the dram to ganged mode and video ram (onboard gf8200) to auto mode and i get no more hangs.
Anyway for example rigth now iam using 1 gb of ram (gnome system monitor) but real use is 3gb (top) because 2gb used like cache, yes you read ok 2gb of cache!!!!!!!!!!!, i think that must to be wrong, why the cache is the double of the real ram used? anyway i may think that when i need more ram the cache will be handicapped but NOT, when i use more ram the system start to swaping, its a disaster 4gb of ram (aka 3.25) and the system swaping, it must to be wrong, anybody can helpme?
thks

sorry about my english.
bye

jeje its very funny, gnome system monitor say that iam using :
448,6 mib (13,7%) of 3.2 gb (RAM)
and also :
87,2 mib of 5,7 gb (SWAP)


If i have (3.2gb - 448,6 mib) 2,7 gb of RAM FREE , why iam using swap??
Maybe i have to open a new post for this problem.
bye

Are you sharing any folder with WinXP or Ubuntu 8.10? Are the 3 OS installed in different partitions?

yes the 3 os are in the same disk and diferent partitions, only mint7 have hangs.
Ubuntu 8.10 and mit 7 have winxp ntfs partition mounted at start.

Okay so you have 3 partitions (1 for each OS).

Are you sharing any folder like /home for example with Ubuntu and Mint?

So i thinks that its a ubuntu core problem, any idea?
