Two questions: 1) What motherboard? 2) Were you using onboard network (ie, was Frugalware forced to use nForce drivers to access the network to get the nForce drivers)?
Frugalware would not install on my pc. I can only attribute it to the motherboard and the nForce drivers because nothing else that I'm using has caused problems before. Not to mention that there are a lot of reports online about serious issues with my motherboard and Linux.
Oh and it also goes out with one big F-U to both nVidia and ATI. Both of your drivers are crap. When buying a new system I have to try to choose the lesser of the two evils. I didn't even want an nForce motherboard but they swapped out my Gigabyte board without even telling me.
