Fedora 13 Desktop freezes

I just installed fedora 13 64 bit on core i3. When I login in to gnome, after few minutes, desktop get freezed and forced to restart the machine via power button. Same is happening in KDE also.

Whats wrong with this release, not able to figure it out.

Also, yum is giving error of failed to get the repo...
Also, wvdial is showing connection established but unable to browse the net.

This made me to get back to Ubuntu 10.04. I am still looking for the solution. any suggestions Please.

Thanks and Regards,
Ashwini

i have that on f12 64-bit, it seems to be something to do with the intel 915 video drivers segfaulting.

what i noticed though is that its just xorg that's dead, you can still ssh into the machine. i can't seem to restart X from the console though, can't figure out what process to kill.

Re: Fedora 13 Desktop freezes

telinit 3
telinit 5

but obviously, it shouldn't do that. the initial report is too vague to be of any use, though. we need _some_ kind of diagnostic...

Re: Fedora 13 Desktop freezes

so far I solved the problem related to yum, and I updated the machine by login through clt+alt+f2 instead of login directly to gnome.

After updating, I figured out that when ever I scroll or browse the menu , the desktop get freezed and failed to respond not even the caps lock nor the clt+alt+fx. Everything works fine untill I click Application menu or System menu, in that also more precisely when ever I go to Applications > system tools or System menu, the problem occured.

What can be the cause for this and what can be the right solution?

System Config: acer aspire 4740, core i3 <How to find details about video cards ? >

Thanks and regards.

Re: Fedora 13 Desktop freezes

that's likely not the crash. that's a warn_slowpath_common, which seems to pop up quite a lot, and isn't a critical error, just a warning. I get 'em on this system but it doesn't hang.

Re: Fedora 13 Desktop freezes

there's an automated crash report tool, but it won't catch *every* crash. If it's working, when you log in - before it crashes again! - you should see a little red siren with an exclamation point on it in the system tray. That's abrt, the automated bug report tool, telling you it's caught something crashing. You can click on it to open up the report and submit it to Bugzilla - again, if you can make it in time before it crashes again

otherwise, you can look at the log file /var/log/messages to see if there's any information about the hangs there.

Re: Fedora 13 Desktop freezes

Hello everyone.

- Please forgive me if I made mistakes, English is not my language -

I've quite the same problem. My desktop is also freezing and suddenly any input doesn't work at all (mouse& keyboard).
I have installed Fedora-13-i386, later as a test I installed the latest Ubuntu 10.04 but the same thing occur.
It happened randomly but within minutes after loggin in either using nouveau or nvidia drivers.
Not always but sometimes it is still possible a SSH connection but in /var/log/messages I can't find anything related to the problem.

I've had experienced similar problems with F12 after updating, and I can remember that as a fresh install
F12 was working properly. So I think there must be some kernel issue or something related with nvidia hardware.

My F13 kernel is 2.6.33.5-112

With Win7 that I have in dual boot no problem whatsoever (and that is really depressing!)

My config:
Intel i5-750
Asus P7P55D Pro
4 Gb ddr3 1333
Gainward Gtx 260

Any Help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Fedora 13 Desktop freezes

Hello every body,

Re: Fedora 13 Desktop freezes

Hi

After a long period of efforts I think there's no way for me to resolve this problem.
I really think is something related to the kernel.

I reinstalled F12 and with kernel 2.6.31.5-127.fc12.i686.PAE everything works just fine, as soon I try an update with newer kernels freezing comes in play again.

So I'm staying with my F12 configuration and with nvidia driver installed.

Hope others will solve their problems.

Re: Fedora 13 Desktop freezes

I have the same problem, and it seems random.

I installed f13 with the experimental d3 drivers for nvidia cards. I love the driver because it actually plays movies while I use compiz. With any other nvidia driver I can only watch a small window of a move or it will shut down the player.

So I tried F13, and it works great, except it does randomly freeze. It will run for days, then just freeze. This is not acceptable for the work I do on my computer. I just figured it was the experimental 3d driver (can't blame fedora for that, since it is experimental). But after reading this, maybe it is something else.

I dual boot with ubuntu 10.04. So I will boot back into fedora and see if I can see a bug report. It would be great if this could be fixed... but I am no expert at finding what the problem is. So if someone wants to give me some instructions that will help, I will do it.

Thanks
David

Re: Fedora 13 Desktop freezes

I did an update-reboot just before my last post, and have been running fedora since with no freezes. It has lasted longer before, but this is a good sign. I will keep running it and see how long it lasts.

I spoke too soon.... It just froze up. I guess I am on ubuntu until this gets fixed.

Thumbs down Re: Fedora 13 Desktop freezes

I found 1 clue!!!

When you install fedora 13 BETA , you will find that there is no freezing but Bugs... (strange menu color)

But after that someone report thut is problem and Fedora fix it the wrong way ... But even though, It fixed the problem...

But then it's freeazing!
