suse 7.1+ riva tnt2

I installed suse 7.1 yesterday on my computer, but I have this strange
problem wit x -- it just dies after random intervals (10min. - 2hrs.), but
the problem is, it halts the entire computer (at least keyboard, mouse and
display). I downloaded the latest drivers from (drivers for
suse7.1), but that only got 3D working, the system still dies after random
intervals, what could be the problem?

1. SuSe 7.2 makes SuSe 7.1 look like beta software and Mandrake 8 like alpha.

Hey guys I just finished installing SuSe 7.2 personal edition which I
picked up at CompUSA today. I got to say that even though I was a Mandrake
fan I am about to switch loyalties and become a SuSe fan. right now I don't
no where to start but everything about SuSe 7.2 just screams ready for
prime time. Installation was one of the slickest looking Linux  installs I
have every seen. It beats Mandrake hands down and makes windoze look very

SuSe 7.2 is fast and stable and every thing from my Creative Live Drive (
which Mandrake never ever detected ) to my NIC 3COM 3c905-TX card was
detected and worked from the start. I updated via SuSe's online update tool
which handled everything automaticly ( I was to lazy to do it manually )
and flawlessly.  Am happy to say that SuSe has won me over and M$ better
watch it's back because if other distro's start looking and acting like
SuSe then it's going to run into a lot of problems in upcoming years from

P.S. The only flaw I find with SuSe is that they make it very diffuclt find
and download the free version. Now am going to see if I can install this on
an old Packard Bell P5 200 mhz system I got laying around here somewhere.
