Description Paul Black 2004-05-18 12:56:36 UTC

Description of problem:
PC hangs - can't get remote access through ssh (didn't try ping). Num
lock key still works but not much else appears to. This has only
started happening after the following was fixed:

The problem seems to be worse with the 2.6.6 kernels that I've tried.

I've currently gone back to the original test3 kernel
(kernel-smp-2.6.5-1.327) to verify that HW is not causing a problem.

Will try to leave machine on overnight in the near future with just
the graphical login screen (to show if something that is running under
X may be triggering the condition).

No kernel messages logged. "Normal" log messages cease when the
machine hangs.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in graphically
2. Wait

Actual Results:  After a period of time (was days with
kernel-smp-2.6.5-1.35x) but seems to be hours with
kernel-smp-2.6.6-1.36x), the machine hangs.

Expected Results:  Shouldn't hang.

Out of curiosity, does this correlate at all with use of the sound system?

Comment 3 Paul Black 2004-07-18 10:05:10 UTC
I'd forgotten about this bug as I haven't seen it for a long time
(currently running 2.6.6-1.435.2.3 on the machine in question). I
don't recall any correlation with sound usage. Anyway, either by
accident or design, I can only assume that the bug has been fixed.

Comment 4 Dave Jones 2004-12-07 06:48:03 UTC
problem fixed with 2.6.9 update kernel ?

Comment 5 Paul Black 2004-12-07 08:30:35 UTC
Haven't seen the issue since the my last message in July (either with FC2 or
FC3). Whatever the issue was, it's gone.
