Description of problem:
When booting the new ( kernel, my system loads fine until I log in.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:
System lockup before gnome-panel even loads.

Expected results:
Log in and have things load normally.

Additional info:

all provided by the Livna repository.  Please let me know what logs you need to
see or anything else.

Thanks a lot,

I also confirm the bug, except I use xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.8.0-16.fc9.i386

A conflict between networkmanager and kernel maybe...
Comment 3 Franck Waechter 2008-06-15 08:17:37 EDT

Comment 4 Colin Walters 2008-06-16 14:05:56 EDT also fixed the freeze on a developer's machine here.
Comment 5 Dax Kelson 2008-06-17 19:39:18 EDT
This is probably a dup of bug 451723
Comment 6 Mike Hanby 2008-06-20 16:10:19 EDT
I have the exact same issue causes a freeze after I login to gnome
(blinking capslock and numlock) on my Dell XPS m1330 notebook (with the iwl4965
wifi card).

Does this problem disappear with -57.fc9 (or later) kernels?
