Strange "e-card" error hangs system


Hi all

I have tried installing FC6 on my Shuttle XPC with an nForce4 motherboard. It is a dual-boot box with Windows XPC on one partition. I can install everything fine, it also boots OK but when I log in, after a while (say, two minutes on average), the system freezes. I can move the mouse but I can't click on anything. I have to use the power button to reboot.

I have scoured my logs. The boot.log is empty but my messages.log contains the same message before the box locks up. The Shuttle is a SN25p. I have no problems in XP so I figured it must be a driver problem rather than the hardware problems which affects this particular Shuttle model.

The final lines in messages.log are as follows:

Jul 11 20:53:13 dhcppc1 smartd[2380]: Opened configuration file /etc/smartd.conf

Jul 11 21:15:23 dhcppc1 init: Trying to re-exec init


I have no idea what this means. From my Googling, it has something to do with a cryptographic smart card reader. Only thing is, I don't have one. I am so keen to get shot of XP once and for all and yet the green fields of Fedora seem so near and yet so far. I have reinstalled FC6 countless times with various kernel options but, truth be told, my inexperience is probably at fault.


Does anyone know where I might be going wrong?

Thanks in advance!
