Re: Fedora Core 2 Kernel 2.6.5-1.435 hangs / freezes

   Has anyone, apart from me, experienced Fedora Core
2 Kernel 2.6.5-1.435 completely hanging / locking-up
the machine? No obvious pattern of actions causes this
problem. There are no error messages before the
lock-up occurs. The machine keyboard becomes
completely unreponsive and I have to perform a power
down, power-up recycle to recover the machine.

    I have not noticed the same machine haging with
the previous kernel: 2.6.5-1.358

I can confirm this.
I upgraded to the last kernel during the weekend, and I've been experiencing random lookups in Gnome all the time.
I went back to 2.6.5-1.358, and everything works fine again, so I suppose it's something kernel-related.

The machine won't die, but it will hang randomly for several seconds or even minutes. Doing "top" doesn't reveal any doubtful proccess.
Sometimes, killing the X-server and login-in again solves the problem... 'till the next lookup.
During the lookups, I can go back to a text console and work just fine, so it seems that something in the last kernel is not playing well with the X-server in some circumstances... At first I suspected of the gnome-* updates, but the problem goes away if hay boot with the 358 kernel... so I suppose it's not (directly) related with Gnome, but with the kernel.

I'm running FC2 with all the updates as of Jun 18th, no 3rd party modules / drivers.

My hardware
- CPU: AMD Athlon XP 1700+
- Mobo: ASUS A7N8X Deluxe (nVidia nForce2)
- Video: ABIT Siluro Geforce4 MX *BUT I'm USING THE "nv" standard driver*

Please, If someone gives me some directions, I'm willing to test this in more detail, in order to provide you with more useful feedback... but I really don't know how :(
