    Oh, well, that's not too bad either... =)

    Hmmm... it's kind of hard to debug these things. Anyhow, I think I have an idea. Since it seems that only the actual video output hangs at first, can you try to SSH into the computer and check for abnormalities of different kinds, like oopses in the kernel logs, the ps -lp output of the PID of the process running ut2003, and what happens if you try to kill that very process?

    good idea!

    I did a ssh from annother machine after the initial lockup and heer is part of the output:

    USER PID %CPU %MEM VSZ RSS TTY STAT START TIME COMMAND

    variant 2380 0.1 1.5 27444 8080 ? S 12:10 0:00 kdeinit: kio_thumbnail thumbnail /tmp/ksocket-variant/klaunchersBKZ1b.slave-socket /tmp/ksocket-variant/konquerork1E
    variant 2381 82.0 43.9 440820 226516 ? R 12:10 1:49 ./ut2003-bin
    variant 2387 0.0 43.9 440820 226516 ? S 12:10 0:00 ./ut2003-bin
    variant 2388 0.0 43.9 440820 226516 ? S 12:10 0:00 ./ut2003-bin
    variant 2390 1.6 43.9 440820 226516 ? S 12:10 0:01 ./ut2003-bin
    variant 2391 0.0 0.3 2596 1628 pts/2 R 12:12 0:00 ps aux

    and

    ps -lp 2381
    F S UID PID PPID C PRI NI ADDR SZ WCHAN TTY TIME CMD
    000 R 500 2381 2376 83 85 0 - 110205 - ? 00:02:05 ut2003-bin


    i then tryed to kill the procces and the ssh window locked up while the game machine also fully locked (sound system) after that i could no longer ssh or ping the machine.

    earlyer i said that the same thing happend with americas army.. thats apparantly not totaly true as i managed to play online last night for a good hour and no crash occurd

    edit- i have also searched online a lot and found noone with similar problems

    Oh sorry, I forgot to mention: Check ps -lp of the X server as well. Also, did you find anything in the logs?

    Kernel messages are usually logged to /var/log/messages, but not all distros do that. A generic way that works for all distros is to run "dmesg | tail". It will extract the last messages directly from the kernel's log buffer.
