Hi,
I have a S3 Savage 4 Video card installed and when I try to use the drivers included with Fedora 5 for that video card, my system hangs up within 5 minutes. I finally managed to get it working with the vesa-Generic Vesa driver but still with that the uptime of my system is only 2 days.

How do I go about solving this problem. Thanks.

have you checked in /var/log/messages for any errors logged at the time of the hangup?
also have you checked in /var/log/Xorg.0.log?

I just changed the card. Apparently, a lot of people are having a lot of problem with this card. I had oa old ATI Radeon card sitting around anyway.
