-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Morning all :)
I've been experiencing some severe system freezes lately, and I wanted to see if anyone might be able to offer any clues/advice on what I might be able to do. The box in question is my main workstation as well as ftp/mail server, and is running 4.9-STABLE. The freezes appear to only happen when I'm in XFree with KDE (at least, I've never had it freeze on me with X/KDE not running). The KDE is version 3.1.4, and XFree is 4.3.0 (I believe). At the point where the box freezes, it stops responding to any physical input as well as any network activity. The harddrives do not appear to be spinning either. I know this is extremely vague, but I don't have much of an idea on how to continue. So far, I've cvsup'd the latest sources and ports, built world and a new kernel (Generic with support for my soundcard.. a soundblaster live 5.1), and used portupgrade (portupgrade -arRcC). I even went so far as to remove my ~.kde and .kderc to see if that would possibly have any effect. For a little bit (~8 days), it seemed to be doing better, and then it began its deviant behavior again. It has increased in occurance, but still seems to be random, beyond the fact that XFree and KDE are running. :(. I'm curious to know what might be causing these freezes, as it's never done this before. I did recently replace an older harddrive (80 gigs versus the original 8 gigs). Beyond that, I rarely add or change anything physically. Taken from top: last pid: 844; load averages: 0.08, 0.10, 0.10 up 0+01:20:36 21:42:51 57 processes: 1 running, 56 sleeping CPU states: 15.1% user, 0.0% nice, 5.0% system, 0.4% interrupt, 79.5% idle Mem: 122M Active, 145M Inact, 56M Wired, 232K Cache, 48M Buf, 51M Free Swap: 752M Total, 752M Free One thing I did also recently was totally clear out /tmp (again, to see if it had any effect). It seems to be doing a little better, although I will see as time goes on. Please, any information or help would be greatly appreciated, as if I can't figure this out, I'll be forced to replace this machine.. something I'm not really able to do financially at this time. Please let me know if any other system info or specs are needed, and thanks in advance :) Cheers, Reuben A.
