Description KitchM 2014-07-11 23:42:34 UTC
Description of problem:New Kernel fails

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):3.15.4-200.fc20 x86_64

How reproducible:Often enough to ruin one's computer productivity

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install upgrade
2. Watch the fun begin

Actual results:  System stopped responding with programs open.  No prior notice.  Reset was needed because keyboard and mouse stopped working.  Did not want to finish boot up.  Reset again.  Started booting and then caused reboot itself.  Had to choose older version to recover usability.

Expected results:  A fully test kernel

Additional info:  This is not the first time.  It has been noted before that Fedora kernels are unstable on new versions, and sometimes on upgrades.  While we know not to use the first new version, users are left with no warning when a kernel will break the system.

Anecdotes are fun to read but not helpful for actually solving the problem.  If you have backtraces or logs that show issues, please reopen.

Why didn't you ask for it?
