(Problems with kernel 18.104.22.168)
I noticed some serious problems to my PC in relationship to the Trident TV BOX and I decided to inform you.
I have always connected a TV BOX (USB 2.0) to my computer.
I am working with Linux and Windows XP on 2 separate hard disks (I can choose on boot my OS).
The TV BOX is working very good on Windows XP.
My Linux OS is the Fedora 16 KDE x86_64.
Fedora could not recognize the tv box but I had not any other problems with the OS.
Recently I got the official fedora updates (new kernel 3.3.0-8).
This kernel could recognise the usb tv box but, I could not find a way to use it.
Anyway , I noticed some unusual problems with the new kernel :
- Τhe boot time was very longer.
- Very often I could not use my keyboard and my mouse ον start up. I could not press any key to login..... (It is a usb keyboard - mouse). I had to restart the PC again and again....
- There was a persistent kernel bug reported to me very often by the ABRT immediately after login.
- During shutting off there was a bug (CPU #1 stall 22 sec). I had to press the power button of the PC steadily on order to shut off.
So, I decided to disconnect the tvbox of the usb port .
After this, all the above problems were disappeared.
I try to help.
Thanks a lot.
