Incidentally, it wasn't just the keyboard---I saw a freeze in the middle of a
package update.

What happens if you turn off power management >


Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2002-12-12 14:02:38 UTC
It wasn't on in the first place, as far as I could tell from the BIOS screen.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
persists.

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
