I have a problem with my fedora core 3 install.
Sometimes when i want to shutdown, the system freezes Nothing works then.
When it happens that it freezes, the gnome panels are already quited and i see just the background image.
The mouse doesn't move, and I can't switch to another tty. When i plug off and plug in the usb-mouse again, the light on the mouse does't beginn to light.
I don't know on what it depends whether or not the system crashes. I looked into
the logfiles, but there is nothing useful.
The only thing I can tell you is, that i have this problem just with kernel 2.6.11 .
But this happens just since the last 2 weeks. before everything worked well.
I tested with knoppix, but it also worked well. I also made a memtest, with no result.
now i switched back to 2.6.10. I hope that i don't have this problem now. But i'll have
to test a bit.
Has anybody an idea, if this is a hardware or a software problem, and maybe where
i can look for error messages?
thanx in advance, komi
