I am experiencing inconsistent, unreproducible, seemingly random lockups/hard freezes of my system. There honestly seems to be no consistent tie-in to running applications, length of time running, etc.
I am running F14 32 bit (PAE) up to date, Gnome Desktop with compiz enabled.
Acer Aspire 5740-5513
Intel (integrated) HD Graphics
Atheros AR928X wireless
I can provide more hardware details if helpful.
Commonly used applications are firefox, chrome, virtualbox, terminal, evolution, nautilus, pidgin
Before I spend hours troubleshooting I thought I'd see if anyone else is seeing this behavior? I have run both the latest two versions of Ubuntu without this issue on this same laptop. I really want to stay on Fedora after a few years away but this is my lone work machine and have to have stability. Before I reluctantly head back to Ubuntu I thought I'd see if there any suggestions/similar stories out there.
I've seen seen many similar type threads, some pertaining to nvidia, firefox, virtualbox, but I wonder if there might be a greater underlying evil.
Thanks for the otherwise wonderful release, Fedora developers. I really enjoy F14 and hope I can solve this issue.
