Re: Freeze on video (with mplayer)
There's something to tweak in the BIOS to get rid of different freezes
(LAN freeze, USB disks freeze, etc. ...).
Maybe you could try the same tweak (if not already done) as shown in the following link
to get rid of your own freeze on video : viewtopic.php?f=9&t=605
Otherwise, I'd suggest to install Ubuntu 9.04 :http://www.fit-pc2.com/wiki/index.php?t ... buntu_9.04
==> Maybe "/etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf" is already ok for this install
(rather than "/home/only_works_for_one_user/.mplayer/config") ?
