Description of problem:
After upgrading to the latest kernel I've started to experience that the system
hangs from time to time for a minute or so
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happens from time to time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start some disk activity
2. If the system hangs, then wait for a minute or so
3. Proceed normally
After some searching on the net I found that the line 'options sata_nv adma=0'
in /etc/modprobe.conf could help and it seems to have in my case. The disk in
question is a ATA Maxtor 6N040T0 and the controller an nVidia CK804
