Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 247992
System Locks up on Scrolling
Last modified: 2008-02-07 23:28:02 EST
Description of problem: System locks up on scrolling and requires reboot. When
scrolling in terminal window using Gimp menus complete lock up. When scrolling
in Firefox same lock up and need to reboot. System is completely frozen. Mouse
arrow will not even move, ctl-alt-bs will not reboot, ctl-backspace has no effect.
This problem occurred with early releases of FC6 and then disappeared with
kernal updates. But it has now reappeared after last 2 or 3 update downloads.
It is not clear whether this is due to kernal, terminal, X or other cause. (I
did not keep history of last updates so can't tell exactly which change caused
this - if at all.) I am booting fromn the latest kernel,
Acts as though memory management may be source of problem.
Since this a totally random occurance it is impossible to be more specific. (Sorry!)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: No sure way to reproduce. Seems to be a random occurance.
Steps to Reproduce:
When the lock up occurs in Firefox the entire screen goes into what appears to
be a terminal loop where a section of the screen seems to continuously scroll at
a very high refresh rate. Requires reboot.
(This is a mass-update to all current FC6 kernel bugs in NEW state)
