Desktop Freeze

Postby alpha » Sun Nov 23, 2008 10:55 pm

Hi, as per title my desktop is constantly freezing...though only,it seems, when connecting to the web (via gnome-ppp and a Novatel MC930D USB dongle).
Initially i thought it may have been some kind of conflict between an open web browser (firefox) and another program - always seemed to freeze when using amarok - but after a complete reinstall,this time minus amarok,the freezing is back...worse than ever.
Any tips would be very much appreciated as i'm still a mint virgin (one week old :oops: )

Hi there. Which edition of Mint are you running, and is it Gnome, KDE, XFCE? (I'm assuming Gnome because you mentioned gnome-ppp)

If you open MintMenu and go to Administration > System Log and select the Message log to read, are there any Pulseaudio messages?
