Check for i/o error messages in /var/log/messages for starters.

Cheers,

I couldn't find any sign from /var/log/messages. But all of my Fedora
3 PC ( 3 or 4) in my network have the same issue. I thought this might
be a know issue. I just have to upgrade them. I know upgrading fixed
the problem.
Not that I'll be of much help but where did you see journal "commit I/O error" ? could you copy down the crash into a reply ? Are you running a gui or text mode ?

Now back in fc3's hey day, I remember problems {message similar to what you are seeing} with the raid array (aacraid) when I booted the SMP kernel {so always used the non-smp kernel}. After some 6 months or so, a combination of raid firmware and newer kernels fixed this up.

I have two fc3 servers {hardware raid 5} up for 200+ days, so it is possible:
 08:57:36 up 214 days, 11:54,  9 users,  load average: 0.22, 0.17, 0.16

The machine is currently running a :
Linux server1 2.6.12-2.3.legacy_FC3smp #1 SMP Sun Feb 19 08:53:09 EST 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

kernel-2.6.12-1.1381_FC3
kernel-2.6.12-2.3.legacy_FC3
kernel-smp-2.6.12-1.1381_FC3
kernel-smp-2.6.12-2.3.legacy_FC3

Running at least the most current kernel update might immediately solve the problem ?
