Description of problem:
After just a few minutes of work in X (whatever application), the system hangs
completely. I can only reboot it by pressing "reset".

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run startx
2. run an application (mozilla, netscape, emacs, abiword etc)

Actual Results:  System crashed

Expected Results:  normal, continuous work.

The video card is ATI Mach 64. There is no errors in XF86 log file nor in

2.4.19 or 2.4.20

You're not using a Red Hat Linux kernel.  Please reproduce this problem
with an official Red Hat supplied binary kernel with no binary only
kernel modules or other kernel modules not provided by Red Hat.

Also, XFree86.9.log is not the proper log file.  Attach XFree86.0.log.

The attached kernel log file, shows a tdfx card.

That was actually a hardware problem. Sorry.
