I'm running fedora 10 i386 fully updated with the latest kernel on an Intel E2180 dual processor with 2 Gigs of ram on an ASRock SATA2 Dual mobo with two 320 Gig SATA drives. Fedora 7,8 and 9 ran perfectly on this system, 8, 9 and 10 are multi booted on this system .
After installing Fedora 10 from a live CD everything just worked! I had to do a few tweaks to get my webcam working with Skype and to get Google Earth running with SELinux set to enforcing mode and I got rid of NetworkManager.
About 10% of the time when I boot up my computer something will not work.
Usually it's the sound but not always sometimes a notification will pop up right after boot saying that sealert has crashed or nautilus has crashed or gnome-something has crashed or bugbuddy has crashed or something else has crashed there have been a lot of different ones, sometimes the bugbuddy reporting tool pops up, very seldom it's the same notification. Some times my desktop theme is not loaded at startup, I'm running Enigma.
I never get a notification when the sound doesn't work.
When the sound doesn't work I right click on the volume control on the panel and select "open volume control" Alsa is missing from the list.
If I run the lsmod command the same modules are always loaded although in a different order, I believe that is normal.
If I reboot whatever the problem was it is almost always gone until a few reboots later. This problem existed with all the previous kernels.
Iwas hoping this problem would be cured by an update but that has not happened.
Is anyone else experiencing this?
