My DELL is a 3.06 GHZ HeaderThreading laptop (5150). As default Fedora
Core 3 chooses the SMP kernel, which is ok, but after the startup it
suddenly hangs completely with a full running harddisk.
I can't find anything in any logfile after having it rebooted. The
non-SMP kernel or an own build kernel runs fine. This was the same as
in Core 2.
can you boot without the 'quiet' boot argument and see if there are any
interesting kernel messages ?
