This is about running Fedora Core 4 on the current Apple iMac G5.
There are reports of gdm freezing the machine. I experienced this also,
and furthermore random crashes while using the console only.
It turned out this was because of the bell of the shell... every
to play sound made the machine crash. Disabling sound completely by not
loading the sound driver modules solves this. On fedora you can do so by
adding them to /etc/hotplug/blacklist.
Thanks for the detail.
Do you have any details that could be used for debugging? Kernel oops
output, dmesg, etc?
