My desktop machine started having random crashes last summer when
I installed Fedora 13 (x86_64) on it. Now I upgraded to Fedora
14, and this has only got worse: before, uptimes could be
anything between 3 minutes and a month, now it's a few hours
I never found anything interesting in the logs.
When running without X, during a crash I saw a message on the
console mentioning mcelog, so I installed and used it as a
daemon, and also via
described here: http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/cpu/mce/README
But it didn't report anything.
I checked temperatures with sensors: nothing. Ran memtest86+ for
hours: the same.
Is there something else that I should check?
Hello everyone. After I installed the updates last night, I can not open
Desktop Effects. Exactly when I choose System->Preferences->Desktop Effects,
there is no window came out. Prior to this, everything is OK. I have

With the default k3b that now uses growisofs to burn a dvd, it fails at
49% every time.
Downloaded the k3b-2.0.2-2.fc14.src.rpm, disabled the patch51 which
changes wodim to growisofs, recompiled and now I can burn a DVD iso
