Freezing/Hanging problem with X
Not sure what else you'll need to know about my setup... I have the latest version of X installed in FC5, as well as the latest FC5 kernel. 256 MB of RAM, GeForce 2 MX graphics card, Creative SB Audigy sound card, and AMD Athlon T-bird at 800 mhz.
For some reason, some kind of error within X is causing my system to freeze to the point that my inputs don't work. I know it's not a specific application because the same error occurs across multiple programs. Not that it TELLS me what the error is.
As of late, it happens when I use GIMP, and the mouse cursor changes a few times (Such as from paint brush cursor, to regular, etc.). Also, it happens when I open certain webpages in any web browser. (right now, gamefaqs.com and torrentspy.com)
All I've been able to tell is that when this occurs, X eats up all but 15MB of memory, then just up and dies. No reason is given, and other than the uber memory consumption, there are no anomalous signs that I can see causing it. No inputs from the mouse or keyboard are registered, although I can move the mouse cursor around.
As for remedies, I'm at a loss. I've thought of uninstalling/reinstalling X, but that's about as safe as riding a missile into Iraqi airspace.
