as mention in another mail my system crashes playing movies with xv
after 4 to  8 seconds. i tried an ati radeon and a geforce 2. the confusing
stuff after playing around about week is that xine or avifile does not
maybe somebody can take a look at the code.

i also tried several drivers (xfree, nvidia, gatos) every driver with the
effekt -> crash .... it depends on the driver if it crashes after 4 or 8
but it crashes everytime. so i can not believe that ati, gatos, xfree and
drivers are all bad.... maybe there is a bug that only appears on my pc ?!

does anyone have an idea how to debug a hole system crash? maybe this
does help to find the problem!

how you can help me... before i kill my pc :)

take care,
