Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

well you are not giveing enough info for me or the linuxquestions members to help you. So we need more info about what are you trying to explain/say to us. Like what AceofSpades19 asked you what is exactly does it hang on? answer that an do you mean when you are trying to log out or shut down fedora it takes a long time do that? huh
When i try to logout/shutdown, The top and bottom panels disappears.
only my background wallpaper and my mouse cursor remains on screen that too not moving. i waited for 1 hours but still condition remained the same.
If "shutdown" works from a console, then it seems likely to me that your problem is related to the GUI/Shutdown interface.
In KDE, go to Settings->System Administration->Login Manager, click on the "Shutdown" tab and verify that you have permission to run shutdown. (There's a similar setting in GNOME, but I can't remember its exact location.) I suspect that you'll find that the settings are correct, since -- from your description -- the "shutdown" process at least started when you were in KDE or GNOME.
Perhaps it's a X-server thing. Can you do a Ctrl-Alt-Backspace to restart the X-server? When the server is restarted you should be presented with your "Login" window. Somewhere on that window should be a button labeled "Menu" or something similar, and one item in the menu should be "Shutdown." See if you can find it, and let us know if it works.
The point in this exercise is to see if, perhaps, your shutdown is being "blocked" by some process that's running on your system in one of your workspaces, and restarting the X-server might stop that process (although it's more likely that it would persist across an X-server reboot.)

Well, the DRI errors shouldn't be causing the problem, although you need direct rendering for 3-D graphics. (That problem is, I'd guess (not being a user of that card), an incorrect setting in /proc/mtrr. But that should have no effect on shutdown failing.)
Perhaps you should push the "Report" button on you original post, and ask the moderator to move this thread to the Fedora forum. I suspect that your problem is more a "Fedora" problem than a "Desktop" one.
