Fedora 17 64bit freezes on a regular basis no matter what programs I use. I suddenly can't move the mouse curser, everthing freezes and the display turns off and on again. When a song or a (Youtube-)video is playing, the video freezes too but I can still here the sound.
==> I have to push the reset button on my computer or hold the power button. It is very annoying especially when I have important documents opened and not saved..
Things I've figured out:
* Same problem on Ubuntu and Fedora 17 xfce spin. (These are the two linux I've tried besides the gnome 3 version)
* Problems only occur AFTER running through first software updates on a freshly installed Fedora system.
* After figuring this out, I reinstalled Fedora again and before making the software updates I read through them and unchecked graphic relevant updates. PROBLEMS DON'T OCCUR NOW.
So I can restrict the source of the problem on the following bug fix updates:
Xorg X11 ati video driver
Xorg X11 vesa video driver
Xorg X server
Please tell me which logs you need. I will deliver.
[Edit]: I will have to install the updates first to reproduce the problem.
