Are you sure it is a total crash? That would be very unusual. Perhaps it is that the system has become unresponsive. If so, it may be that xine is using 100% cpu time.

You could try opening a terminal window first, then trying to run xine. If it happens again, click on the terminal and run pkill xine.

The "xine" not only one reason what my system crash, sometime when i browse in firefox my system become very slow, and after few sec i can't do nothing. Can't move mouse, sound stop, can't close browser or any program. In windows with cltr+alt+del i can check what program is running and kill if its not respond. Could i check in slack, if it is impossible.

Suggestion: maybe i miss something with my driver configuration, how could i check in slack? :|
ghmz i don't remember, but before multilib installation and configuration i manager work all day, after multilib my system become unstable. <--- maybe i'm not sure about that

Thx for help

If your system crashes again, try CTRL+ALT+F2. If it switches you to the console, it means your system has not really crashed. You could try to login and
Code:
ps -A
locate the PID (process ID) you think might have caused the issue and
Code:
kill process_number
"ps -A" again to see if it was removed from the list. If not, then you'll have to sigkill it
Code:
kill -9 process_number
Then you can try to go back to X by pressing CTRL+ALT+F7.

BTW even if your gui desktop **seems** to be dead where you can't move your mouse or keyboard, you can still ssh to your system from another computer.
I find that unless its a total kernel crash, the system is still up. If the kernel is healthy and runs, it seems to never die.

Not bad idea, but it take a lot time, because i don't have at home second computer, so i can't check

Can it be what not system fault, but X? any X error log?
