Latest working kernel version: 2.6.26

Distribution: Ubuntu Hardy 8.04

Software Environment: xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.2.1-1ubuntu13.6
Problem Description:as soon as starting video playback the laptop freezes. 
No messages, nothing, no console switching. Had to reboot. 
I am using composite window manager (compiz fusion).

Steps to reproduce: start mplayer with an AVI file.
Comment 1 Jesse Barnes 2008-08-09 13:33:26 UTC
Can you narrow it down to a specific mplayer output option?  E.g. does it happen with mplayer -vo xv or mplayer -vo x11 or some other option?
Comment 2 Romano Giannetti 2008-08-10 10:48:33 UTC

I am sorry, I cannot reproduce it. I tried with x11, xv, gl, gl2 and all worked ok. I do not know what can have happened, but I am sure that it happened three times in a row yesterday, with the same kernel. 

You can mark the bug as invalid if you like, if I can trigger it again I will re-open it.
