Crash

Well, my computer crashes...
When it crashes xmms just stops, i can still move my mouse and click on things, after a while (about one minute) i cant click things anymoore.
usually I go to the terminal (If i stay in icewm it will stop and not let me change to the terminal) and do ctrl+c on x but it takes very long for it to shutdown.
after it has shutdown the computer almost seems fine (very slow) but when pressing tab or sometimes when pressing the back button(name?) the computer starts beeping, Its one long beep that lasts about five seconds.
When trying to shutdown it is also very slow.

ps. Hello everybody smile

Re: Crash

Does it "crash" when xmms is not running?

Re: Crash

Im not sure, never used the computer for a long time without starting xmms.
Could I use some other music app or should I leave the computer on overnight? smile

Re: Crash

open a terminal with "top" or "htop" running and let it sit next to xmms.... i'm assuming some process on your computer is taking all the cpu and/or mem...

are you playing some odd files through xmms?

and about different music players - there's about 30 of them.... amarok, beep, etc

--edit--
When rebooting it said system going down and gave the time '23:04' and when i had rebooted it it says '23:11' i get that to 7 minutes!
Im using mp3blaster currently to see if it was xmms but the computer still behaved weird when i had closed xmms.

Re: Crash

What are the last things that changed just before this started to happen? (See also /var/log/*).

pacman -S memtest86+

In case you overclock your computer, don't.

Re: Crash

you should look for faulty RAM of yours, that's why I gave the hint at installing memtest86+.

Re: Crash

If RAM is ok try running some harddisk tests (smartmontools from staging).
Did you move your computer ? Maybe you need to open it and check pci cards and cables too.
Also "overloading" alsa by for example playing many sounds at the same time can produce similar freezing effects (in the current alsa version at least).
