Description Dr. Roberto Porcaro 2000-11-21 02:50:01 EST
When in sawfish is activeted the sounds on events, the system hangsup 
after a few minutes when you work under gnome. It is not possible to 
switch to virtual console to kill the process, all the system is frozen.
So it is necessary to reboot the system by pressing the power button.

This has to be an X server or kernel bug; can you tell us what sound card and
video card you have?
Comment 2 Dr. Roberto Porcaro 2000-11-24 03:37:49 EST
sorry for the delay in my answer:
Here it is the informations you requested:
1) The video card is a MGA 100 AGP with 8MB of VRAM
2) I don't have a sound card, instead I have a sound chip integradted on the 
motherboard.

Thanks
Roberto

What kind of integrated sound chip (what do you get if you
run 'lspci')?
Comment 5 Dr. Roberto Porcaro 2000-11-29 10:16:12 EST
The sound chip on my motherboard is: Elite PCI Audio CMI8738.
I hope that this can help you to solve my problem.

Assiging to kernel - looks like a bug in the cmpci driver.

I've got the same problem with Gnome/sawfish and the Yamaha YMF-724F based card
installed in my dual P3 box (ymfsb.o driver).  It plays sounds for a while then
hangs the system (not even SysRq works).  The lspci reports the following
sound/video devices:

00:0b.0 Multimedia audio controller: Yamaha Corporation YMF-724F [DS-1 Audio
Controller] (rev 03)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Riva TnT 128 [NV04] (rev
04)

Could this be an SMP sound issue?  Or do you still suspect Gnome/sawfish/X?

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
persists.

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
