Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3049
Sporadic hangs with X Windows -- kernel tight loop(?)
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
I have two separate machines (PII/300/128mb/STB Velocity 128
& K6-2/350/128mb/Diamond SpeedStar A50) that have RedHat 6.0
loaded and each system experiences sporadic hangs that
require the machine to be rebooted: the keyboard doesn't
respond, the mouse doesn't respond, you can't telnet to the
machine (it doesn't even answer pings). Both of these
machines worked fine under RedHat 5.2, and I did fresh
installs for both machines for RedHat 6.0, with the standard
I haven't been able to pinpoint the exact cause -- for a
while I thought that Netscape Communicator was the problem,
but it has happened at times when I wasn't running
Communicator. I am running GNOME/Enlightenment (from the CD
RPMs) on both machines but GNOME/Enlightenment worked fine
on both machines with RH 5.2.
There's not enough information here to reproduce this problem.
Please reopen this bug if you have more specific information about how
we can reproduce the problem.
