USB Help Fedore on Acer Travelmate 800LCi - SYSTEM FREEZING!
I am a newbie to Linux.
Was talked into using it by a few of my colleagues.
Anywho, I am beginng to learn the extreme basics to Linux. Essentially I am trying to use Linux for what I would have normally used Windows for which is essentially watching my DIVX and XVID movies. If I can get that far, then I have learned how to do something.
My problem is this:
I am running Fedora Core 1 on an Acer Travelmate 800LCi. The install went normally and I learned how to mount and unmount devices.
I am able to mount my Lexar 256mb flash drive without an issue.
But when I attempt to connect either my Buslink 80gb External HDD or Simpletech 30gb Externl HDD, the entire system locks up and freezes and I cannot do anything except turn off the unit entirely and startup all over again.
Other than this, thus far, Linus is running well.
I need this to work as these drives contain my music and movie files, which would make my using Linux worthwhile.
As of now I continue to use WinBlows as my backdrop until I can hopefully sort out these issues.
THANKS IN ADVANCE.
