Re: ATI 4850 Fedora 15 Freeze
I have a similar problem but with KDE on F15. I currently have an ATI HD3650 installed. The difference is that my mouse pointer also becomes unresponsive along with the keyboard. I had run into a thread that suggested diabling Desktop Effects and that seemed to fix it for a couple of days and then today it started again. When it happens if I am playing music tracks it'll keep on going until the track ends and does not go to the next track. One time I was printing a 200 page document and the printer finished the document and then stopped while everything else was unresponsive.
Today I ran into another thread that indicates installing Catalyst and then blacklisting radeon, radeonhd fixed it for him (Fedora 15 freezes with ATI Catalyst), the subject line is misleading, I first thought the problem was Catalyst until I actually read the thread.
Hey, I was born confused, what's your excuse?!?!?! :D
