Hi Max,

This time I have successfully installed the sound card driver of my
laptop which is an Intel high definition audio by recompiling the
kernel again through adding device pcm and device snd_hda modules then
it works fine while VLC is executed in the console. This time with
Xfce4 desktop environment, running VLC on the GUI will also occur the
core dump issue and the VLC process just died right after the moment
it is executed. What should be the parameters of the ktrace to track
VLC process executed on top of Xfce4?

I also attached the dmesg output of the detected Intel sound card driver.
