wierd messages in system log


my computer somehwat froze earlier. I was trying to plug in a logitech mouse, and after my system wouldn't pick it up, i just put it aside to finish my work using my touchpad. but then why i tried to type something, nothing was being printed onto the screen. i kept going crazy with pressing random buttons alot(seems to work for toddlers that have a rubber hammer, aol commercial ). i'm wondering if that is why i got sooooooooooooooooooooooo many error messages. they where so many i couldn't post them, too many characters. but, you kinda get the idea when u see the pattern. i believe this might be from earlier, when it kinda froze, cuase somewhere in those error messages was a message that said i tried shuting down, which i did try to do earlier, but then i had to manualy hold down the power button cause all i got was a black screen with a cursor in the top left corner when i told it to shutdown properly.

I couldn't be 100% sure, but this looks to me like your system had a major problem talking to hdc, and this is what caused it to hang!

Nothing whatsoever to do with the mouse - the usb messages you have at the bottom of this log file look perfectly normal to me.

wierd messages in system log
What do you mean by system log? Do you mean that these messages came from /var/log/syslog?

Cheers,

Steve

i believe that is where the messages came from. im using suse 9.2, and somewhere in control panel, under misc, there is an icon for system log and it prints it out in pretty form. i think it's what u are talking about.

my system seems to hang alot when i'm dealing with setting up ftp/http sources for install. I don't know if it's supposed to take that long to setup, but sometimes it just sits there doing stuff, and i get agrivated and keep hitting the x button. so, i think it might have something to do with that.

thnx
