Description Doug Maxey 2013-09-13 22:10:47 EDT
Description of problem:
At some point, within a few minutes short of 108 hours of runtime, the screen starts to flash like the visible bell is being triggered.  Have left it to run for about an hour or so before rebooting to get it to stop.  Tried restarted the xserver, but made no difference, the complete reset wot don it :/

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

# uname -vr
3.10.10-200.fc19.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Aug 29 19:05:45 UTC 2013

How reproducible:

Fairly reproducible, has happened consistently, have to wait just under 5 days though.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start system
2. watch screen :)

Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
Not that big of a deal, usually get a new kernel and have to reboot anyway.

Comment 1 Doug Maxey 2013-09-13 22:24:19 EDT
Oh, yeah.  One other tidbit.  The login dialog screen does not flash, just after logging back in.   If it was flashing, it picks it right back up.
Comment 2 Doug Maxey 2013-09-13 22:29:56 EDT
That was not too clear.  Once the screens start flashing, logging out gets me back to the login dialog, which does not flash.  But once logged back in w/o a reboot, the flashing immediately resumes.
Comment 3 Doug Maxey 2013-09-14 13:21:08 EDT
meh.  I can't add either.

Seems like it was up to tricks when I logged in, so it fell over before that.

Today however, I was logged in when it happened:

Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 14:49:58 EST
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2015-02-17 12:10:52 EST
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
