Subject: Re: Fedora Hangs on Laptop

I'm having a similar problem with Fedora 10 on Dell Latitude D630.
Actually, Fedora 10 has been working great for the past two days. But today
after I installed the broadcom-wl package for wireless, whenever I start the
wifi machine just hangs / freezes completely.
The CapsLock and ScrollLock buttons keep flashing on and off and the only
way out is to  turn the
system off and restart.

Not sure why this is happening, apart from this hiccup fedora 10 seems to be

can somebody help me out?

I'm running Fedora 9 on a Dell XPS M1330 laptop. I'm using one of the
earliest F9 kernel (2.6.25-14.fc9.i686.PAE) because I've been unable
to get a wireless connection with any later kernel that I've tried.

But I'm having huge problems with this kernel too. At random times the
machine just freezes completely. The capslock and num-lock buttons
flash on and off but the only way out of it seems to be to turn the
system off and restart. Sometimes it can be an hour or so before the
problems occurs, but more often it's a few minutes. This obviously
makes the system pretty much unusable. I can use the system for as
long as Iike when I boot it into Vista.

Has anyone else seen this behaviour? Or do you have any suggestions on
how I can help to investigate the problem?
