How do I report these? I get about one a day,
typically while in Firefox
and
doing something else.  The machine locks up
tight (flashing num and
scroll
locks) and requires power cycling and nothing
seems to get logged. Abrt
doesn't see it after restart.



I have had this problem in the past with Fedora 9, I believe using ATI graphics cards. I tracked it down to glxgears (posted to this group then) getting invoked and eliminated it to get around this problem. Specifically, I did

yum erase glx-utils

This may not work for you because you may use glxgears for something but it did work for me.

Best wishes,

The same here:
Linux ***.** 2.6.30.9-102.fc11.i586 #1 SMP Thu Dec
3 23:46:37 EST 2009
i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
And yes, Firefox is not always involved. I've
already asked the
question on this list (haven't received any
responses).
How do you know it's kernel panic?

When the machine locks up, the caps-lock and
scroll-light both flash. What's
really annoying is that if I'm playing music, it gets
really weird and
scares the cats.

Do you have desktop effects enabled? I found that my system
is much
more stable with desktop effects turned off [1]. My video
is ATI [2]
with driver 'ati' [3].

I do have an ATI card. I'll try turning off desktop effects. Removing glx-utils removes all of compiz!
