Description of problem:
When I let my computer open for a long time without touching to it
(one night for me), xscreensaver freeze and I can't do anything except
rebotting manually the computer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start fc3test2
2. choose random screen saver in screensaver options
3. let the computer on for a long time (about 10 hours for me)
Actual Results: Xscreensaver freeze
Expected Results: Normal stop of xscreensaver when I move the mouse
or hit a key.
I also had this problem under fc2.
I still get this problem under fc3-test3. This happened to me today
after only 1 hour without touching to the computer.
does this happen with the GL screensavers?
No, I haven't seen him bug any time with the GL screensavers. I also
noticed that my this happen more often with the screensaver named
"Polytopes" but this also happen with any screensaver.
Under fc2 have had this problem several times. Discovered from about 1hour
after last use to much longer times. Can't find anything useful in the logfiles.
System can only be unlocked by reboot.
I've understood what happened : my computer needed to be clean inside! It was so
dirty that each time the cpu was working hard, the computer freezed. Sorry about
the spam. Should now be closed as NOTABUG. And Albert, clean up your computer
and check after. I'm pretty sure this won't happen again.
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
