X / KDE Freezes during yum update
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:42 EST
Description of problem:
X /KDE freezes (clock ceases update and all screen updates freeze)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 2 test 3 updarted to May 8 4004 22:59 PM
During yum update screen freeezes
Steps to Reproduce:
1.do yum update from an xterm under KDE
2. during the update process, getting headers, ghetting rpms, and
during the actual update the screen including the install of the rpms
the screen freezes including the clock display and all screen updates
freeze until I change virtual desktops, at which time the screen
restarts until the next freeze. During a yum update the screebn froze
at least 4 times.
I should have said that the error occurred DURING yum update 5/8/2004,
not WITH update to that level.
it looks like that yum/rpm takes much CPU times, that causes this issue.
I don't think it's a bug in KDE.
How many kernels do you have installed:
rpm -qa kernel
If more than 4, remove kernel packages you are not using.
Does that help?
I had 4 kernels as listed by "rpm -qa kernel"
2.6.5-1.349,.351,.356,.327. I removed .327 and .351, via rpm -e
kernel-2.6.5-1.3xx etc. I also removed the associated entrys in
I will report on results.
Presumably this problem has been resolved. Please reopen if not.
