    Hanged by Music Apps


    Help me or I go back to Windows.

    I have SuSE 8.2; updated on March 20th, 2004. When I try to use programs such as Trommler, Jazz++ and Rosegarden my machine hangs and I have to hit the power button. Nothing else works. The programs open and then hang.

    I am a poor musician and I was told great things about Linux and how it compares to MSWin. All of the online info says Linux is great for audio, but I haven't seen it.

    I think it's a hardware issue.

    Terribly sorry to be so vague in my initial post.

    I am convinced that my problem lies somewhere on my motherboard. Without going into detail, I was sold a piece of **** -- sorry faulty -- board and the tech who eventually fixed the problem had to do some serious workaround to get it to function at all.

    Like I said, I'm poor, so I have no choice but to use this board. I would like to take th opportunity to say DO NOT DEAL IN ANY WAY WITH ATIC COMPUTERS IN VANCOUVER BC!!! However, CALS' COMPUTER WAREHOUSE is fantastic.

    I tried some of the apps on my roomies machine, a true frankenstien box if ever there was one, and they work much better. Hence my conclusion that it's a hardware issue.

    So until I get a new board and a card that is definitely Linux-friendly, I'm putting the issue on the back burner.

    Thank you all very much for taking the time to respond and I will let you know how it goes.
