Description of problem:
All my SMP kernels crash randomly on both kde & gnome, but not in a command line environment. I have run kernel-smp-2.6.11-1.14_FC3.i686.rpm extensively in a command line environment without any problems. Running kde or gnome freezes the system, locking out the keyboard and mouse, requiring a hardware reset. The time-to-failure variation suggests improper initialization. Perhaps it's not in X, but the way SMP relates to them. I'm unable to figure that out.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-smp-2.6.9-1.667.i686.rpm, kernel-smp-2.6.11-1.14_FC3.i686.rpm & apparently xorg-x11-6.8.2-1.FC3.13_2.rhfc3.at.i386.rpm (currently installed rpms)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot either SMP kernel.
2. Log on under gnome or kde.
3. Work away, for a variable time.
Actual Results: The caret froze (stopped responding to the mouse and didn't move otherwise). The keyboard became unresponsive so that I was unable to change to a command line or reboot other that via a hardware reset.
Expected Results: The mouse and keyboard should have continued to respond.
I have tested this carefully and discussed it on Fedora Forum.
