View Full Version : kernel crash allot

12th June 2009, 09:51 PM
HI Everyone,

I'm having some/piticular problem(s) with my fresh install of Fedora 10.

My system specs:

Brand: Toshiba Sattilite
Processor: AMD Athlon X2 64 Bit
Video: ATI Radeon HD 3100 256MB DDR2
Memory: 2GB DDR2
HD: Partion 220GB Windows Vista Home Premium, 20GB Fedora 10 KDE 4.2.2, 2GB Swap

Clean Install, Full/All updates

Video Driver Latest: Fglrx from RPMFUSION

My system starts and I get the desktop, Pretty much everything works fine just for some minor bugs.

My problems lies with Logout and Dual Display and sometimes with Shutdown.

When I logout, I get this message
Failed to exec command "/tmp/fireglXXXXXX" (File no longer exists)<-- Something to the affect then Kernel Crashes

When I shutdown, I get rows of blinking X's with gray background from top to bottom of the screen then I see services pop out from the background stopping and the system shuts down successfully.

When I suspend to ram, it suspends to ram successfully, on occassion when I wake up, Kernel Crashes.

When I start the computer with the monitor plug in, starts up fine until Xorg boots and I get: Failed to exec command "/tmp/fireglXXXXXX" (File no longer exists), then Kernel Crashes.

All these kernel Crashes, Kernel debug trace runs and I boot the next time and I see the report.

Same report for all Kernel Crashes.

I'm not at my computer right now but error says

Kernel Crash Message 1:

BUG: Sleeping Atomic invalid context<-- something like that, as soon I get to my computer I post up here soon.

I think I might have norrowed it down to Exec failed for command "/tmp/firegl1.isse.5b5ab150.46aeeaef.000a048a" (No such file or directory) which has to do with fglrx..... Only solutions I find so for are for ubuntu...

any help, The main reason I'm using linux is for Dual Monitor, In windows vista, the driver stops responding after few minutes of use, I thought I would be better off using linux, I reinstalled driver and kernel few times, reinstall fedora and the problem reappears, I'm not sure if I should install the driver from ATI website...

14th June 2009, 08:48 PM
I know it's only been I couple of days, but I couldn't wait any longer and I decided to install Kubuntu 9.04 and everything works flawlessly... Suspend to ram with no kernel crashes, logout with no kernel crashes, ati driver installed successfully and I have full 3d acceleration...

I usually got 546 fps using the glxgears with desktop kde affects under fedora 10 with full updates, under Kubuntu I get 1200 fps with desktop effects all the way up to 1400 fps... i'm sorry fedora, you looked very promising but still not there for an average desktop user,

On possitive note AMD64, fedora 10/kubuntu, firefox is blazzing fast!!! faster then on windows vista pc, I mean loading time is faster, fast fast fast, fire 3.0.11 you rule...
