I installed Karmic yesterday to a Dell E510 with two hard drives, one running winxp and the other win vista home premium. Karmic was installed in a partition alongside winxp. The installation went great and I am able to select Winxp, WinVista or Karmic without a hitch.
I use Firefox to browse the net and usually if I find myself needing to perform a function within Firefox whether it be File or using a Tool, going to bookmarks or anything else Karmic - will freeze. My cursor will move but I have no keyboard function so I must hard shut down the computer to get out of the "dead zone". It will come right back up and work until I try to actually perform some function.
If I go to Synaptic and attempt to select a program to install or uninstall, the computer will also freeze and I must "hold the start button" to shut down. As a comparison I'm running Hardy on another computer, an HP Pavilion a1220n - dual-booting with WinVista and it runs super. Rarely is there even a glitch.
The computer I installed Koala on has more memory, a better graphics card, has a dual processor..all reasons why I elected to put Koala on this Dell Vs. doing a clean install to the HP. Plus the idea was to get down to one computer.
Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.
