Default Fedora 8 hanging

I'm getting constant hangs on my Fedora 8 on a Compaq Presario F500,
with an AMD turion 64 (running Fedora 64) and an Nvidia video card
(using the binary driver from livna).


For some reason I get random hangs (nothing works at all) and don't know
if the nvidia driver is to blame or something in the kernel. Logs say
nothing.


I'm using a koji kernel -101.fc8 which has a fix for my broadcom
wireless card (with the kernels available in F8 hangs were more often
and I couldn't get connected to my AP).


This Notebook work very well with Fedora 7 and I did an upgrade using
the December re spin from fedora unity.


Any tip on what I can do to check where the problem is? I was gonna fill
a bug report but I'm not sure where the problem is yet.

Remove the binary driver. Reboot using the nv Fedora supplied driver and
see how it runs for a bit. If it still hangs then you know its not likely to
be the Nvidia driver

Removed nvidia.ko from the start up and the system hanged at boot time
when trying to start NM. Hangs happen randomly as I said: At differnet
times of boot or when in graphical mode.

See

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/KernelCommonProblems
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=283161 (Bug is i686 not
x86_64 hangs, but the command line options are worth trying out, nohz=off,
highres=off, clocksource=xxx etc. ). Rawhide kernels seemed to be the fix
for me :-)

The thing is that I'm using the x86_64 kernel on a turion64.

Also I had some other issues, like the fact that I couldn't see the
tty[1-6] virtual terminals, and after suspending the system it came back
with a blank screen which sometimes got fixed by trying to move to one
of the text virtual terminals and back to graphical mode.


These two issues were fixed when I moved completely back to the NV
driver from xorg.


The problem is that I still get hangs at random time.

Right now I'm gonna try the acpi=off option at boot time.

Any other ideas are welcomed?
