Feisty Beta on x86_64 freezed after login

Asked by albd on 2007-04-17

After some updates within a last week, the system is freeze a few minutes after GDM login.
No errors found in /var/log.

There is not hardware problem. OpenSUSE10.2 and WinXP works well on this computer.

I was tryed the fglrx driver with same results.

CPU: Athlon 64 3000+
System board: MSI MS-7025
Video: Radeon 9550
Memeory: 1G
Hard disks: 2 sata + 1 ide

There is any way to get some debug info or kernel coredump, after such freeze ?
The problem present on all kernels 2.6.20-13, 2.6.20-14, 2.6.20-15

Were you by any chance using Firefox (even out of focus)?

hmm, well it may be that it isnt generating logs, as it cuts out too quickly and violently, not even giving logs the chance to be created.

Cesare,
I'm not sure for 100%, but seems you're right about the filrefox.
I will test this case today.

albd (syakov) said : #4

The problem is not related to Firefox.
Already tryed to remove
   compiz and desktop effects,
   nspluginwrapper for FF,
   firefox
   change X driver to fglrx and back.
   install all updates.

Unfortunately, the system is stop responce after 5-15 min within GUI desktop, even if
it's completley idle.

Any ideas how to debug this problem ??

Can you switch to the console - CTRL+ALT+F1, login, and then run

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop

To completely shutdown the graphical environment, leave it an hour and see if it still crashes. This may allow us to focus on the graphical area for problem diagnosis.

Ok, It's not related to graphical area. In the console mode it was stucked after 5-6 min.
1. I have run "top", leave it working and system freezed again.
      Over tite row of "top" followed message appeared:
      [ 421.293737] BUG: soft lockup detected on CPU#0!
2. In single user mode, on console it WASN'T hapened.

  I have prepared lsof and ps -ef output before system halted in conlole.
   If it's interested I can send it too.

Thanks.

Seems your network card causes the lookup. See the bug I linked
