Re: [vox-tech] not sure what to call it

Actually this a new install.  It is about 3 weeks old and has done it since
I installed it.  The problem is that it's almost random.  My girlfriend and
I use it as an internet terminal and one of us will log out and the other
will try to log in and it'll hang.

But speaking of new RPM's I did add Sun Java because she likes to play Yahoo
card games.  I'm wondering if that could be the problem.

Scanning both dmesg and messages hasn't revealed a prime suspect which is
why I turned to the list.  I guess I'm just too used to things working :)

I've dissabled USB and will watch to see what happens.
