Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 147450
FC3 system freezes for no apparent reason.
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:16:37 EST
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
