Firefox crash cause gdm crash after 30/08 update
Last modified: 2008-09-18 12:16:12 EDT
Description of problem:
Gnome desktop crashes randomly after browsing websites for a while. First firefox crashed, then other programs and gnome-panel crashed. After gnome-panel restarted, it froze. Pressed ctrl-alt-backspace to log out then log in, gnome-panel still froze.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
30 minutes or one hour after restart, it crashed.
I'm having this problem too, fwiw
So, do you mean gdm froze or is it gnome-session that froze?
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.
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.
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.
Shaopu, are you still seeing this with current rawhide ?
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.
