System has hung (no keyboard or network response, screen frozen) ~dozen

started interactively.  Possibly after running for some time?

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

How reproducible:
Couldn't Reproduce

Additional info:

Have had hangs with several distinct kernels (ie, 2.2.x and 2.4.x, default
and custom

Workaround: remove Greynetic screensaver or select another, static
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-11-28 01:08:53 EST
This is generally a problem with the X driver or the kernel.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-11-01 01:53:00 EST
There have been many fixes in X since this was reported.  Can you
please let me know if you still encounter this in Red Hat Linux 8.0,
and if so, please attach your X server log and config file.
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2002-11-07 07:48:23 EST
Bug #73827 is related.  Not sure if it is a dupe or not, so I'm setting it
as a block.

Please indicate if this is a problem still or not. And attach your X server
log and config file.  I need this information in order to know what hardware
is being used, and to see if there is any useful information for troubleshooting
if I do need to debug anything.
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2002-12-19 04:29:34 EST
Closing bug due to lack of response/feedback and lack of information.
If problem persists, feel free to reopen and supply updated information
as requested above.
