Description Bryan Kearney 2008-11-06 19:36:52 UTC
Description of problem:
Running Previre Release of F10 on an XO. I launched cheese, and attempted to take a video recording. I got logs of these lines in /var/log/messages:

Early in the log file was some verbose pulseaudio output that may/maynot be related.

Hmm, this is interesting. Could you please provide a full bt?

Comment 4 Lennart Poettering 2008-12-17 22:09:38 UTC
Hmm, I also find the "Submitted 1 kernel oopses to www.kerneloops.org" part interesting. Mabe the PA issue just a followup issue due to a kernel issue? What is that about?

For the stack trace see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/StackTraces

Closing due to lock of response.
