4Suite is a set of python tools and libraries for XML handling, and didn't crash
your laptop.

Refiling against the kernel.

Oh the bios noathlon bug :(
Yes you have to install the i686 kernel on machines with a buggy bios that leave
the chipset in a debug state where it can't handle hard work.
(and then still heavy activity such as 3D can kill the box)

We're working on a kernel that fixus up after the bios and disables the chipset
debug mode.
