Description ct7 1999-05-25 16:32:23 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
2.2.5 kernel.

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.
