Ahhhh... that makes sense... Gives me something to look for now.
I've been having problems with an incorrect ioctl from sound. I've
disabled my sound card completely. Maybe this will stop the freezing
in the RH splash screen. Haven't tried it yet.

I'm also back in Windoze because I just screwed up dns stuff while
playing with KDE. :-(

I've rarely had Gnome freeze. Just the failure to log out. I can keep
using Gnome. To log out, I open a console and shutdown  :-(

YES!!! Lots of bad stuff from running Netscape 4.6

I have core 1.0.5-2  and libs 1.0.10-2 from:
I'm assuming this is the best place to get the latest RPM's.
