RE: Fedora Hangs on Laptop



for what it's worth.. and it might not be much!

i have a toshiba satellite, running f9, and had an issue where the system
would freeze/lockup, that i managed to resolve with new/different xorg
drivers.

basically, i changed from radeon, to radeonhd in the xrog.conf, and
downloaded the appropriate driver. might help your issue.. but without
knowing more about your symptoms/setup, can't say for sure.

Last night I tried the Fedora 10 preview on this machine and I'm
pleased to report that not only did the wireless problems go away, but
I was able to use the system for three hours without it hanging.

Fedora 10 looks like a lovely release. I'm really looking forward to
the official version. Many thanks to everyone who was involved.
