Remove the binary driver. Reboot using the nv Fedora supplied driver and
see how it runs for a bit. If it still hangs then you know its not likely to
be the Nvidia driver

Removed nvidia.ko from the start up and the system hanged at boot time when trying to start NM. Hangs happen randomly as I said: At differnet times of boot or when in graphical mode.

x86_64 hangs, but the command line options are worth trying out, nohz=off,
highres=off, clocksource=xxx etc. ). Rawhide kernels seemed to be the fix
for me :-)

The thing is that I'm using the x86_64 kernel on a turion64.

Also I had some other issues, like the fact that I couldn't see the tty[1-6] virtual terminals, and after suspending the system it came back with a blank screen which sometimes got fixed by trying to move to one of the text virtual terminals and back to graphical mode.

These two issues were fixed when I moved completely back to the NV driver from xorg.

The problem is that I still get hangs at random time.

Right now I'm gonna try the acpi=off option at boot time.

Any other ideas are welcomed?
