Is your computer dual boot, if so, does it also reboot in other operating systems? If it does, then it could be a HW problem. When you notice freezing GUI can you log into the console (Ctrl+Alt+F2, or Ctrl+Alt+F3), or from ssh? Please check/post your dmesg after the freezing happens. Also, check your syslog. Your file system is checked upon bootup, so it is unlikely to be FS issue.

You can keep checking the io stats to see if IO is still going to the disk. If it is, then you should wait until it finishes.

For example:

:~$ iostat -m Linux 3.18.7-200.fc21.x86_64 (hades) 02/24/2015 _x86_64_ (4 CPU)

avg-cpu: %user %nice %system %iowait %steal %idle 1.46 0.04 0.59 1.21 0.00 96.70

2013-09-06 10:06:31 -0600 answered a question Gnome shell changed with latest Fedora 19 update.

I fixed it by yum groupinstall gnome-shell or something. I think I messed it up when I did a yum autoremove. Updates had nothing to do with it.

2013-09-06 08:48:26 -0600 asked a question Gnome shell changed with latest Fedora 19 update.

I updated my fedora and the Gnome shell looks different. I want the old one back but cannot find any settings in the tweak tool to do this. How can I revert the look back to the way it was?

New Gnome shell has a white bar on the top and a white bar on the bottom (like classic gnome 2.0 bar with all windows).


I did not change any shell themes. Although, I did do a "yum autoremove". Did I accidentally remove anything?
