FreeRunner crashes after 10 minutes using GPS

Dear list,

My FreeRunner (running Om2008.9) freezes after about 10 minutes using the GPS from my Java application. I think it's the same issue discussed below. I have searched the tickets but didnt find a reference to this among the 2200 tickets.

User Trevino recommends replacing xglamo with xfbdev. How do I do it?

Any ideas?

Juan Lucas

Last time I've used Xglamo based distros I had this too. As I said in 
the other thread, imho the problem is only due to Glamo and/or Xglamo 
since using Xfbdev workarounds it (remove xglamo and install xfbdev 
instead, no more freezes!).

This is supported also by the freezing errors you reported (and that I 
got too).
