Hi, Running on a Lenovo T60P, 3G RAM.
Have been running Suse 10.2 with relatively no problems (any hangs directly due to suspend/resume over a many repeated times).
I upgraded to 11.1 and since then, I’ve seen a lot of random hanging. When I mean random, I mean random, no time, no actions, all random.
I thought it might be overheating (laptop has always run hot). But one of the hangs happened in low speed and medium temperature.
I’ve put netconsole / netcat on, but when the next hang happened, nothing came on.
No CAPS flashing. Complete freeze.
Nothing in any log.
No ssh access.
When does it freeze ? I can be working away, and suddenly everything is locked. Left the machine alone for hours and then was slowly moving the mouse (doing nothing) and it locked up. another time been 36 hours, another about maybe 15minutes after a reboot. Its not locked up while I am NOT on the machine, e.g. if I leave it overnight running, it is still running in the morning. It has always hung when “doing something” … so far.
The mouse will freeze, screen stays locked, nothing responds.
I’ve also run memtest, pass.
I don’t use compiz, I do have ATI drivers (but I am pretty sure it also hung with the non ATI drivers - which is why I tried ATI).
I’ve always disabled beagle/kerry and co.
I’ve put back the 10.2 disk, to run, to see if it hangs at all. I think I would prefer not.
Any help in helping to identify the issue would be great.
