"My acer TravelMate220 is doing something similar.
I can login, launch pidgin and that synergy gui, but after about 30-40sec
the laptop freezes. Unresponsive, clock frozen and nothing working except
rebooting, followed by the same thing again."

Hadn't he heard? Acer recommends Windows XP or Windows Vista on its laptops

You should have kept reading the thread Stewie, instead of simply nodding in
that dim way and cherry picking comments because one of them suits your
bigoted agenda.

What he had heard was the freedom to choose, he probably had to buy the
laptop with Microsoft as its OS, but decided to use a more advanced OS, I
would guess that pidgin has issues, and nothing to do with the OS he
installed.

I had no idea what pidgin did until I just looked it up, I understand why
so many posts have shown up saying it crashes linux boxes, so another
major threat to a Microsoft dominated bit of software and the clowns all
pile in.

I used pidgin under Debian lenny before I found an emacs jabber
client. It (pidgin) is quite good IMO and is much better than the emacs
jabber interface.

Well, obviously, Windows Vista is a bastion of stability
compared to Linux, then right?

Oh, wait...

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

Also not good:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

It is possible one might blame other vendors, but one wonders here, too.

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

looks slightly unusual but why a freeze for a misconfigured video card?

Some helpful tips if Vista has problems:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

which apparently it does on occasion:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

Granted, it could be a hardware problem:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

though why would this user have a problem after an update? Same
hardware, didn't do this before...??

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

and *this* poor user was an avid champion of Vista until...
...something happened...

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

And *don't* let the kids get involved, or this might happen:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

Awww, ain't that ky00t?

Oh, and the BSOD's still around (well, sort of), for those
waxing nostalgic:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

I *hope* this one's a hardware issue:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

and ditto for this one:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

...but this one clearly was a software issue on the *router*,
if it's the same one mentioned on another thread:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

Now, granted, you have 1 problem mentioned; I could
probably find 20, as Linux might have 5% of the desktop
to Windows' 95%, if one is feeling generous (if not, I'd
have to find maybe 200!). But if the troll is to imply
that Linux is unstable crap, I wouldn't point to Vista as
being rock solid either, at least on certain equipment.

Funny how the 'advanced OS' can't last more than 30 seconds before freezing
and requiring a reboot.

And if it's your claim the pidgin app is the problem, then why have a
thousand Linux monkeys been bleating for years about "apps can't take down
Linux"?





ahh... I forgot...Linux is just the kernel.




So you're saying the poster is a liar?

The real problem - as usual - is it's free crapware written by a Linux hack.




huh?

I did read the thread before posting, SlowBloke. The complainant Keba never
posted again, and nobody ever replied to him.

So what's your point?

The real problem is you desperately need OSS to be crapware.

A problem in Fedora may be a Linux problem, or it may be a Fedora
problem. Same with any other Linux based distro. But you try to convince
people that every single problem that affects anyone affects everyone the
same way, and you know that's a lie.
