System freezes up


I'm running 12.0 on my older system since my newer system crashed few weeks ago also running 12.0 but that was board issue. I'm using kernel 2.6.21.5-smp vanilla. I am using xfce.
The problem doesn't occur unless I try to play music or videos. Video is agp card and audio is onboard. It's using vesa FB. I've got alsa configured and running.
Code:
 lsmod

An audio issue perhaps? Try upgrading the kernel to 2.6.27. I believe that one comes with Slack 12.2.

I changed previous statement because system locks up opening any video (online or on hard drive).

Hello,

It seems that your graphic chipset is SIS. If that's the case, try to use the SIS video driver in /etc/X11/xorg.conf instead of VESA driver:

Code:
Section "Device"
  ...
  Driver "sis"
  ...
EndSection

Tried that but didn't solve the problem.
