      i just recently moved to linux and enountered a major problem. the
      keyboard froze after a few minutes of working with it. i have read
      several reports of similar things happening, hoqwever, have heard no
      definative answer to it. Upon shutting the computer down and
      restarting it, keyboard function returns, however, i lose it fairly
      quickly. we thought it might be an overheating program, perhaps cause
      by a failure of the fan to operate properly under linux, but it did
      not seem overheated at all. Another website suggested installing GPM,
      some mouse software, but the installation requires libtinfo.so.5 which
      is extremely rare and i have not been able to find. what can i do?
