Description Valeriy Ovechkin 2005-02-08 00:55:09 UTC
Description of problem:
I upgraded my machine, which has been running Red Hat 9.0 for two
years without any problems, to Fedora Core 3. In the past month, the
machine froze up three times. When that happened, the power was on,
but the display was dark, keyboard did not respond to Ctrl-Alt-Del or
anything else, and the machine didn't respond to ping. The
/var/log/messages did not have any error messages around the freeze up
time. I am frastrated and don't know what to do next, because I
haven't noticed any pattern. The machine is running samba, cups,
postfix, and some backup scripts via cron. Last time it froze up in
the middle of the night when nothing was happening.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 2.6.10 1.760_FC3

How reproducible:
Happens every two weeks or so.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. leave my machine running.
Actual results:
Machine freezes, and has to be manually rebooted.

Expected results:
Machine is running forever.

Additional info:
As requested.

after upgrade to 2.6.11-1.14_FC3
kernel  System freeze for no reason at all 
Never had problem til this kernel version 

httpd , ssh are about it running 24/7 
screen freezes mouse un responsive, no keyboard functionally 

Only a hard reboot solves the problem.  Nothing show is /var/log/messages

An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.
