I'm having this problem too, fwiw
Comment 2 jmccann 2008-09-04 17:07:20 EDT
So, do you mean gdm froze or is it gnome-session that froze?
Comment 3 Shaopu Chiu 2008-09-05 09:30:04 EDT
I'm not sure which froze...sorry. It just froze for maybe one or two minutes, and when I try to start "any" program, whole desktop crash again and I can only see my wallpaper. Then the gnome-panel starts up again, the problem remains.
Comment 4 jmccann 2008-09-08 21:03:07 EDT
Very difficult to understand what the problem is.  Can you attach your ~/.xsession-errors ?  This is almost certainly not GDM.  Moving to gnome-session for now.
Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2008-09-08 22:23:29 EDT
These 'flaming deaths of the whole system after 2 hours' that I have seen for quite a while in rawhide have disappeared on my system now.
Comment 6 Matthias Clasen 2008-09-18 10:31:49 EDT
Shaopu, are you still seeing this with current rawhide ?
Comment 7 Shaopu Chiu 2008-09-18 12:13:18 EDT
Sorry, I was busy recently and didn't see the e-mail.

Days ago I re-installed fc10, and it's not a problem anymore.
It no more crashes.

Thanks for help.
