Redhat hangs occasionally
My Redhat installation has started to hang more or less on the start once in a while (about every other reboot).
The stream of events are: Start up/restart computer; choose Linux kernel 2.4.19 from grub; go to login screen; log in as myself;; GNOME loads and starts Evolution; nothing works exceptthe mouse. I can move hte mouse pointer, but mouse clicks, and key presses have no effect, wither with the external keyboard or the built-in keyboard (I'm using a Toshiba Satellite 5205-s703, which I why I'm using the 2.4.19 kernel).
I have to unplug the laptop and remove it's battery to restart hte mochine. So far the rebooting from that has always worked fine, albeit slowly as it usually fsck's the file systems.
What can I do to track down why this is happening?
