    Anyone know what be causing what appears to be something in cron (4 am or

       Now it is freezing around 4 am .. any ideas what may be causing this ?
Its been a happy F7 machine for a long time prior to this ?

1. As Ed has suggested, check out the jobs in cron.
4am is the point time the standard cron-jobs (makewhatis, updatedb etc)
are being launched. So it's very likely it might be related to them.

In past years, updatedb has caused me grief. Didn't finish. By the time I found out, several were running and loadaverage was 14+


Not good, on a 128 mb PII.
