Re: 169.04 go boom
I've no clue why but the same happened today, but with a twist... my screen was left black and wouldn't come back on till I rebooted. It seems x tried to restart a few times after it died so I lost the original xorg.log, the kernel messages are still present though.... anyway, chvt and various other tricks (sysrq etc) to get back to console wouldn't work and this is new since I usually get back to console to restart x. The problem, as I mentioned before, happens nondeterministically when mplayer exits after playing an arbitrary video. I'm not sure but I think chances of it occuring are heightened when looking at a different desktop than the video is playing on as my last 3 freezes have occured as such.
