periodic freezes


While running X (KDE) in slack 10.01 is subjected to periodic freezes. Generally it recovers and when I ctr-alt-f1 out the messages read that something is apparently looking for a cdrom availible to the user running X and not finding it. How can I figure out what is looking for the CDROM and keep it from hanging my system? (There is a cdrom on my system but its hardly ever used and thus generally unmounted)

Also, It just froze again a few minutes ago and didn't recover as usual forcing the reset button. I was unable to go out of x and veiw messages. How do I figure out what was going on when the system froze? Should there be a log in /var someplace?

Hmm...I'm having a similar problem to your second scenario.

I'd post what I did: /var/log/xorg.0.log and your xorg.conf
