Description of problem:
When watching TV with xawtv,
the machine locks up after a
few hours. Nothing can be done
after that, not even the SysRq
keys work. Nothing in the logs.
There is enough of evidence to
suspect the radeon driver though:
I tried older kernels, from F12
where there were no lock-ups, but
it still locks up, so it is not
a kernel's fault. Also, I tried
the fbdev driver, and it doesn't
lock up. The radeon driver does.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
05:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon HD 3870
01:08.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7134/SAA7135HL Video Broadcast Decoder (rev 01)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run xawtv
2. Watch movie
Hangs after an hour or two
It just locks up hard.
No way to collect any info...
There were no problems on F12.
any tests I can do to help solving this?

This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '13'.
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 13'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 13 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:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
