I have run fedora for many years but I have not had the privilege thus far to try to figure something like this out. I have Fedora 16 64-bit running on a machine at home. The machine is not that old (couple of years or so). I started having weird problems with it, so I first thought it might be the video card. So, I replaced that. Then, I continued to have problems, so I replaced the memory. I'm still having issues. I finally figured out how to get information out of a core dump file. Here's what it said:
(gdb) core-file core.22142
[New LWP 22142]
[New LWP 22173]
[New LWP 22171]
Core was generated by `/usr/libexec/vino-server'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.
#0 timeout_free (t=0x1ccb9c0) at glib-watch.c:206
206 t->glib_poll->timeout_req_cleanup = TRUE;
I tried "googling" for an answer, but I couldn't find anything that looked like what I am facing. Any thoughts?
I am thinking it might be PSU related at this point (notice that my last resort is to blame Fedora
. The issues are not isolated to VNC-based sessions. I was using NX in the past and that gave me fits too. I think it even happens when I'm logged directly into the box.
