If the system is wedged, it is trying to do something but cannot make progress; it may be capable of doing a few things, but not be fully operational.

It is usually thought to derive from a common description of recto-cranial inversion; however, it may actually have originated with older ‘hot-press’ printing technology in which physical type elements were locked into type frames with wedges driven in by mallets. Once this had been done, no changes in the typesetting for that page could be made.
