Hey folks. So I am getting crashes very frequently. It's fast at least - it crashes straight to this screen: ==== AUTHENTICATING FOR === Authentication is required to run system-config-keyboard Authenticating as: Hamish Todd (htodd) ==== AUTHENTICATION FAILED ===

...and then I am on the login page. When I log in, all my processes have been killed.

I am running fedora in a virtualbox VM.

you could play a bit with the different vm options for cpu and gpu. The best way to test if Fedora is working is to start a livedisk from a usbdrive.
