Enbedded Realplayer Problem

Some sites use a pop up "player" behind which is actually Realplayer. This works fine in Konqueror until, for some reason, the stream stops and I decide to close the pop up. This causes a complete system freeze and I then do a CAD which takes me back to the login.

I have two questions:

1. Is there a way that I can get out of a situation like this without doing a CAD? and

2. Is there some setting that needs to be made/changed that will stop the lockup?

Thanks in advance!


PS: Just wonder if this could be a video card problem as I'm using an S3 Virge with only 4MB of onboard memory.

Hmm, not sure what causes the lockup, but perhaps you can avoid it by closing the Konqueror that started the popup.

Another idea is to start ksysguard (CTRL-ESC) and kill the realplayer process there (or something calles nspluginviewer it it runs as a plugin).

Thanks for ksysguard (CTRL-ESC) - I'll try that in a similar situation. I've only had SuSE installed for a week so there's lots to learn (and unlearn) after years of Windows :)
