User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7
Description of problem:
The gnome-system-monitor applet occasionally freezes even when system load is minimal. This sometime presages a system freeze, but not always. It is often under high disk or network load (which are being displayed.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. add gnome-system-monitor to panel
2. configure syste, network, and disk in 60 pixel windows
3. perform high network task like an NFS transfer or a binaries download
Actual Results: load windows cease updating after a period of jerkiness
Expected Results: continuous smooth operation
removing and re-installing the applet does not restore functionality; only a reboot clears the problem. (Hmm, have not tried logging out/in of gnome session.)
System is Celeron CPU, standard SiS PCI chipset, ATI Radeon 7200 GPU, IT8212 RAID,
1.5Go RAM, etc.
logging out of the gnome session does not stop multiload-applet-2!
It is still running while the gdm-greeter is sitting there.
loging back in (w/o restarting X) results in a frozen monitor display.
Next I'll try restarting X. Can't reboot at the moment.
Restarted X, multiload-applet-2 was still running afterwards!
along with a bunch of gnome related stuff
killing some of it off results in a somewhat cleaner restart of gnome, but the
monitor applet (running as a new,different process) is missing in action -- just
a white rectangle where it should be.
Gnome seems a bit messed up in this area.
Created attachment 126731 [details]
Kernel oops (extract) for multiload-applet
The attachment is the extracted oops messages for the latest crash of
FC4 fully updated.
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
