Sudden Freezes

Hi, I am running a fully updated Fedora 17 and just started getting hit by sudden freezes that force me to do a hard-reboot. No specific suspect, but as I recall, Firefox was running with several open tabs each time the freeze occurred. Anybody else having this issue lately?

Hi:

Sorry, but I don't know how to find it out. After my post, however, I found out a bunch of updates which include gnome-session and clutter, among others. I also switched from the latest available kernel to the previous one, 3.3.0-8, to see if there is any improvement.

Ok, thanks for the hints. So far, this seems related to either xorg or the latest kernel. Using the previous kernel as already indicated, so far no freezes. I will later switch to the newest kernel and try to collect the xorg data.

Re: Sudden Freezes

After more than twelve hours of stability with kernel 3.3.0-8, I just got another freeze while watching a .flv file in Firefox. I applied the command but its output is not long:
Code:
[root@Hogar ~]# cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old | grep EE
	(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
[    33.800] (II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
[    33.802] (EE) Failed to load module "nv" (module does not exist, 0)
[root@Hogar ~]#
Not sure if it's related, but network manager is way erratic too, detecting and failing to detect my wireless card at random with each reboot.

Re: Sudden Freezes

try upgrading your nvidia drivers for your current kernel.

Concerning your wireless, do you by any chance have atheros wifi card?

Re: Sudden Freezes

Yes, I'm pretty sure is an Atheros card. Here's the pertinent output:

I don't have the best experience with nvidia, so I prefer to stick with nouveau. I'll check bugzilla for a similar bug or file a new one.

Why are you using the nv module? wasn't it depreciated in F13?

Code:
[    33.802] (EE) Failed to load module "nv" (module does not exist, 0)
You should be using the nouveau module.

Yes, I agree. It's supposed to be nouveau. I'll file a bug report.

I forgot to report that I started suffering the freezes with kernel 3.3.0-8, so it must be a graphics issue.

Post your xorg.conf

Code:
cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Re: Sudden Freezes

I filed bug 810695. Here's the output requested:
Code:
[root@Hogar ~]# cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
cat: /etc/X11/xorg.conf: No such file or directory
[root@Hogar ~]#
I'm using an nvidia gforce 8300 card that sends a digital signal to my viewsonic monitor. Sometimes the digital signal is lost for a second.
