Description Tim Waugh 2015-10-22 17:44:18 EDT
Description of problem:
I have Fedora Server 22 installed on a headless HP Microserver system. If I boot the 4.2.3 kernel it will freeze within several hours.

The previous kernel (4.1.10-200.fc22.x86_64) doesn't do this.

In its frozen state it does not respond to pings, and plugging in a USB keyboard briefly flickers one of the keyboard LEDs. Connecting a monitor shows no signal (compared to when it is running normally, in which case a login tty is shown).

Frustratingly, there is nothing in the BIOS event log or in the systemd journal to indicate what might be wrong.

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

How reproducible:
Pretty reliable several times now.

Same bug here, with Fedora Workstation 22 on Asus X453 M. Screen freeze and we need reboot system.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2016-02-19 04:22:30 EST
FWIW I haven't seen this with happen with kernel-4.2.8-200.fc22.x86_64.
Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 14:18:44 EDT
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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
