Hi all,

I have Fedora 14 installed on a Dell Latitude E6510.

Unfortunately the system randomly freezes from time to time. The only thing that helps, is a hard reset. I can neither switch to another TTY, nor restart the X-server etc. I guess it's related to the graphics card driver (nvidia).

After a freeze I find the following warnings at the end of my Xorg.log with timestamps just before the
freeze (some examples):
