I have noticed sudden lockups on the media, e.g videos played in linuxmce, the system can work for days without problems, but sometimes it locks completley up playing a random video file (music videos for instance), checking which process uses most ressources i get that Xine_Player uses 99% of the cpu, on my 3.4ghz system.
When it "locks-up" the audio normally works fine for a while, and it displays approx 1picture pr 10th second!
and i can't do anything with my remote.
issuing a killall -9 Xine_Player (e.g takes 2 minutes to log-on via ssh to the box because all ressources goes to xine) then it takes a minute or two and the orbiter re-launches and everything is working again.
What could cause this behaviour, does anyone else notice this, the system hardware should be fine even though i should've had more RAM,
memtest86 reports no problems with the ram.
3.4ghz p4 with 512mb ddr2 ram.
nvidia 6600gt card with 256mb ram.
