fedora froze after k3b install

I did a fresh install of fedora 8, setup livna repository, used yum to install k3b (brought up terminal, used command su - and entered password, used command yum -y install k3b) everything worked fine... complete! problem is at this moment my system froze... no mouse or keyboard response... control-alt-delete no response... had to use restart button on computer. I have never had this happen with linux. system restarted fine, but worried if there is a problem. i have many more things to install and don't want to continue if there is an issue... would rather start over and do another fresh install of fedora. bottom line... I don't like mysteries, don't have much spare time, and don't want to continue until this is resolved. by the way, love linux, don't miss that "other" system, and have been using fedora 6 with no problems.

Not familiar with K3B...but rule of thumb is, if it crashed your system once, it'll do it again. Your best bet is to just uninstall and use another burner.

Just wanted to clarify... I was already using k3b with Fedora 6... no problems. I did a fresh install of Fedora 8, this time I did not add Livna repo yet, installed k3b with no problems.
