we used a Fedora 14 live CD to install Fedora 14 onto a machine we have here for testing. We chose this way, because it was the easiest and fastest way of installation.
Anyway, generally, this works very good. Today I wanted to start up the machine again for some tests, just to find the machine not booting. Pressing Esc on boot shows me, that the Avahi Daemon and the ABRT Daemon did not start. Yesterday it worked fine. The boot stops directly after the ADT Daemon then.
This is like the third time this happened. The only solution we found, was to reinstall Fedora.
Though re-installing goes fast and the lab is set up pretty quickly, this is very annoying. Due to the nature of testing, we wanted to stick to F14, since we did most of the tests already there and the first installation worked fine for about 4 weeks or so. Then this happened the first time. After that it worked for 2 weeks, then a week and now just one day.
Does anyone have a clue on how to fix this properly? Any suggestions will be welcome.
I forgot to mention, that this is not depending on updates. Usually I had installed all the updates. Last time I did not (for saving time) and it happened anyway. We first thought, this could be because of an update, since the first time it occured was 4 weeks after installation.
