As I stated before, the problems are present with all 2.6.6-X kernels officially released on fedora channels. I tried every subversion released. No problems with 2.6.5-X, all subversions.

My boot parameters (I include som lines from my grub.conf file):

[...]
title Fedora Core (2.6.5-1.358)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358 ro root=/dev/vg00/lvol0 rhgb quiet vga=791
initrd /initrd-2.6.5-1.358.img
[...]
title Fedora Core (2.6.6-1.435)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.6-1.435 ro root=/dev/vg00/lvol0 rhgb acpi=off vga=791
initrd /initrd-2.6.6-1.435.img



Note the acpi=off option, essential for me, to boot with any 2.6.6-X kernel without freeze.


I carefully examined kernel logs after freezing, but I didn't see any unusual string. Maybe there wasn't enough time for syslog to write errors before freezing?

I'll have to try this on my home system. I doubt it is even using acpi though since it is a AMD K6 350 based system, and one particular screen saver.
