*** Bug 160637 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
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'.
After the crashes at the beginning of june, I updated the kernel to the one of
Fedora 4 and the computer is running fine since then (+/- 1 month without a
I will install the new Fedora 3 kernel to test it.
As they are both based off of 188.8.131.52, I'm fairly confident this is fixed in
FC3 too. If it reoccurs, please reopen.
