http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello there. :) I got a message today telling me that there where 78 updates available. One of them was Kernel 2.6.29.6-213.fc11.i586 and when I installed all the updates and rebooted, my startup time was very slow. And when I checked the boot.log I noticed this: Code: Enabling the nvidia driver: *** glibc detected *** /usr/bin/python: free(): invalid pointer: 0x00f0e24a *** ======= Backtrace: =========
