    Unhappy BT2 freezes.

    Maybe somebody can help me?
    Backtrack 2 freezes randomly on my Amilo m1425 notebook.
    There are no errors, no messages, just everything freeze. No buttons are working, but Led on PCMCIA Card keep blinking.
    After I have installed BT2 on HD these freezes occurs much more often, mayby 5 min after start(I just starts airepaly .
    I don't think my notebook is overheated, because I had used other LiveCD without freezes for much longer time.

    I'm not so familiar with Linux, so I can't You more detailed info, but I'll try to do my best.

    Hi,

    Did you manage to find out your pblm ?

    I have a similar one here :

    trying to run BT2 Live.
    It boots,
    I log in succesfully,
    I run xconf succesfully,
    I start xwin succesfully,
    I get inside the KDE.
    Nothing strange so far.
    Mouse works.

    Then when I click on anything, ie start a shell, the system freezes
    completly.
    Thanks,
    F.

    Are either of you using ATI graphics cards by any chance on your laptops with the ati module from this site?

    Sorry to bring back an old post, but I am also experiencing freezing / locking up.

    I have an IBM T42 Thinkpad with an ATI FireGL video card.

    I was experiencing the lockup from an fresh install and after I ran xconf with the the resolution of 1600x1200 (my native resolution).

    Was there a fix / know problem you were going to suggestion to elazar?

    Thank you.
