    system stops responding


    Hello everybody, i am using slackware 10.2 and kde 3.3.2 and i am having some problems, because sometimes it's just stops responding for a few second, it don't respond nor to keyboard nor to mouse, and every programs stops. Have anyone had same problem, or is there is any log file or some application which could trace the reason of such crashes?

    You could try another Desktop Environment - Gnome or Xfce.
