SubjectRe: 2.4.0-test12-pre4 + cs46xx + KDE 2.0 = frozen system
Hi,

I am seeing something strange too, trying to reliably reproduce it
for a while - it is rare but irritating.
Most likely to happen on cold power on (first@evening)

--- X ---

XFree86 Version 3.3.6 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6300)
Release Date: January 8 1999
If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your card is newer
than the above date, look for a newer version before reporting
problems. (see http://www.XFree86.Org/FAQ)
Operating System: Linux 2.2.14 i686 [ELF] SuSE

Voodo 3 2000 (PCI)
now running unaccelerated

--- KDE 2 ---

--- Audio, with or without audio ---

--- Kernel ---
2.2.16 or 2.4.0-testXX


I have more or less come to the conclusion that it is some KDE 2 interaction
with the X server that triggers this...
And that the OS - keyboard and video still runs.
I have seen data IO on modem after freeze...
(Thinking about trying another window manager for awhile...)

But every time I have had an opportunity to hook up another computer, like
tonight - It does not happen... :-(
