Question Centos 6.3 crashes(Freezes) without slowing down first


Kernel version is 2.6.32-279.19.1.el6.x86_64

It crashes after 5 , 10 , 15 minutes I dont know sometimes after 2 hours, sometimes after 1 or 2 days working fine, I have no idea...
It doesn't slow down and then crash, it just stop responding to mouse and KB and that's how I know it is frozen again and then I force shutdown Often even if RAM usage is 1% ... no processes
Sometime it happens EVEN IF I DONT RUN OR DO ANYTHING, EVEN IF I JUST TURN IT ON AND LEAVE IT BE !!!! Sometimes it works for 2 3 days perfectly and then Again Faulty BAD DAY (( Without any pattern !! or Rule , I can't understand!

Please share your ideas and experience

this is the last symptoms seen using Tail -f /var/log/messages , Error and Kern

This type of problem is typically a hardware issue. Have you added / changed any RAM lately? Are all your fans running with temperatures at reasonable levels (never higher than 70C)?

No I havent changed RAM lately , About Temperature I don't know its a DELL PRECISION T7500 Workstation and everything physical about it appears to me as OK! but yet again this unpredictable HANGS and Crashes happen, Right now that Im typing this the Workstation is fine and is working its almost 4 hours since the last crash, But IM SURE it might even work for another 1 day or 2 3 days Or it might crash right now, Its not predictable, Thats why Im FRUSTRATED!!! I want it fixed, I dont want to simply reinstall the OS !!!


Dear macemoneta
Thanks a lot 4 Ur quick reply Can the problem be by any chance because of the sound card? snd module !!! pulseaudio thing happens a lot in the LOGS !!!

I really Appreciate it if you helped me on this problem, Its bugging me so much

Cheers

The pulseaudio messages are not fatal. The radeon ring buffer overflow is generally not fatal. I would suggest trying a newer kernel. If a newer kernel isn't available from CentOS, pull one from Fedora - 3.6.11 is the current stable kernel there.

If I RUN YUM UPDATE on the workstation wouldn't it update me kernel as well?

I ran "YUM UPDATE" 2 weeks ago as The crashes start to bug me, After that I guess the error regarding libvirtd: Could not find keytab file: /etc/libvirt/krb5.tab: No such file or directory] made its first appearance in my LOGS I guess. The workstation sometimes Works Fine like it fixes itself, but sometimes No matter what It crashes after even 8 or 10 minutes after startup or sometimes takes a little longer to crash ( 1 2 hr) no certain pattern or explanation.
I will try dig into this kernel thing but I really appreciate it if U can let me know How to make sure if I can use Centos kernel or how can I bring it from fedora if centos os N/A.

Tnx A million Macemoneta I hope Ur tips finally solve this thing out :-bd
