Description Byron Hale 2005-05-06 09:06:36 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050416 Fedora/1.0.3-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
All my SMP kernels crash randomly on both kde & gnome, but not in a command line environment.  I have run kernel-smp-2.6.11-1.14_FC3.i686.rpm extensively in a command line environment without any problems.  Running kde or gnome freezes the system, locking out the keyboard and mouse, requiring a hardware reset.  The time-to-failure variation suggests improper initialization.  Perhaps it's not in X, but the way SMP relates to them. I'm unable to figure that out.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-smp-2.6.9-1.667.i686.rpm, kernel-smp-2.6.11-1.14_FC3.i686.rpm & apparently (currently installed rpms)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot either SMP kernel.
2. Log on under gnome or kde.
3. Work away, for a variable time.

Actual Results:  The caret froze (stopped responding to the mouse and didn't move otherwise).  The keyboard became unresponsive so that I was unable to change to a command line or reboot other that via a hardware reset.

Expected Results:  The mouse and keyboard should have continued to respond.

Additional info:

I have tested this carefully and discussed it on Fedora Forum.

This is technical support request, not a bug report.  You're not even
using Red Hat supplied xorg-x11!

Use the Fedora mailing lists for technical support, and if you need additional
assistance use the mailing list.

Don't file bug reports in Red Hat bugzilla for 3rd party software.
