Kernel 2.6.15-1.1830 lock-up issues



Installed the new kernel this am, and updated all my modules (fglrx and ntfs, 
plus the vmwareplayer). All seemed well. Returned to the machine some time 
later and it was in screen saver. I have this machine set to require a 
password  to exit screensaver. It took the password and the desktop opened. 
Then, I noticed there was no mouse cursor. Looked at the CPU activity monitor 
and it was pegged at 100%. Waited a long while but to no avail. Was able to 
switch to a console with Ctl-Alt-F1 but before I could log in, I got a kernel 
panic and some messages about being unable to sync. I did a hard reset and 
came back up, and then tried a reboot. The screen switched to black after a 
moment, and the machine hung - no commands accepted, no activity visible on 
the machine, nothing - did another hard reset. Per an earlier message, I 
tried upgrading module-init-tools from updates-testing. Tried another reboot, 
but got the same result again when I tried a shutdown... For now, I've booted 
into the previous kernel.
