Hi *,
i just bought a powerbook 12'', my first ppc...and immediatly i would install my preferred linux distro but..... i have a strange problem: often when i press the TAB key the pc freeze. even the cursor disappear and stop to blink. I noticed that also the HDD stops to work...so i suppose that all the system is freezed. At this point i have to keep pressed the power button and reboot all.
I have a lot of other problems but i think that i need just to work for fix them....but this... i have no idea about this problem!!
In a first moment i thought some bash-completition issue....but... this appened also when i was connected to another box with ssh!! I have no idea!!! do you have some suggestion? thank you!

i am suspecting that is a sound issue..... when i press TAB button, often there is the BEEP, sometimes this works, sometimes doesn't. Maybe this blocks all.... in addiction i have some sound issue: i am tring to use ALSA but the sound is distorted (seem a blank noise over my sound). Do you have some idea?

might be, but I am not having any sound issues. Although sometime when I press the tab the system beeps loudly and freezes it does not stop beeping untill I shut it down.

I do not belive it has anything to do with sound either. Is anyone else having this problem??
