Did you checked common bugs for Fedora 11? Please review this document, there might be answer for you


Also if this still happens on Fedora 12, please try to provide more details - where exactly does it hang? Which starting service is crashing your box? Turn off the quite mode and observe the output etc ..

I don't see any answer ...

Does the issue persist? This seems to be rather kernel issue. There were a couple of kernel updates. So I'd like to know if the issue still exists and I'd like to obtain dmesg and /var/log/messages when it persists.

Otherwise F-11 support will be finished just after releasing F-13. Please, let me know the current status of the bug.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '11'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

There is not enough information to reproduce or to find the source of problems. If problems persists reopen the bug with additional information. In this case I recommend to reopen it against kernel.
