I have installed ROSA 2012.1 Fresh on my PC.

my computer was hanging.
I have such problem when playing video in VLC with XVideo output.
I have attached some diagnostic information

Is the user able to get to another virtual terminal (e.g., with ctrl-alt-f2) when the system hangs and login there?

If so, please get the output of 'dmesg' or 'journalctl -a' and post it here.

Besides that, please post Xorg log. (/var/log/Xorg.0.log).

If your hardware supports watchdog timer, you should enable it and enable kernel's options for lockup detection. Wdt will produce stacktraces, which, I hope, will give clear view of what going inside kernel during lockup

You can also try the following to retrieve the system log.

1. By default, journald keeps the logs in memory (and may flush them to /var/log/messages from time to time), so they may get lost if the system hangs and is then rebooted. Let us make them more persistent (as root):

  # mkdir /var/log/journal/

Now the logs will be saved on disk by default.

2. Now reboot the system and try to reproduce the problem.

3. After the system hangs again, boot in Live mode from ROSA install DVD or a USB stick and mount the root partition somewhere, e.g., to /mnt/root_part/.

If the user installed ROSA Fresh as the only system on their PC and did not change the default disk partitioning, the system is likely to be installed to /dev/sda, /dev/sda1 being the root partition. If the configuration is different, it is up to the user to find it.

  # mkdir /mnt/root_part
  # mount /dev/<name of root partition> /mnt/root_part

4. As root, execute

  # journalctl -a -D /mnt/root_part/var/log/journal/ > system.log

Post system.log here.
