How about a clue, Jack? So much hokum has been talked that I've been skipping the sound threads, particularly as everything else plays correctly. I thought or a moment that I was going to get a whole track played (my problem is in amarok, but exactly the same as the rhythmbox one). This is what happened: Jul 29 18:45:33 anne-laptop pulseaudio: ratelimit.c: 7106 events suppressed Jul 29 18:45:33 anne-laptop pulseaudio: alsa-sink.c: Increasing minimal latency to 56.00 ms Jul 29 18:48:26 anne-laptop pulseaudio: alsa-sink.c: Increasing wakeup watermark to 46.00 ms Jul 29 18:48:31 anne-laptop pulseaudio: ratelimit.c: 6194 events suppressed Jul 29 18:48:36 anne-laptop pulseaudio: ratelimit.c: 6014 events suppressed Jul 29 18:48:38 anne-laptop kernel: kio_thumbnail: segfault at 1320 ip 00a4f1de sp bfa0848c error 4 in libgcc_s-4.4.0-20090506.so.1[a2e000+2a000] ^C The moment of the 'Increasing wakeup watermark' message is when it started to race and crackle. Is this what you were expecting to see? I so, what's the workaround? Just out of curiosity, I'll do the same experiment while playing it in kaffeine, as I have never seen it happen there. It will be interesting to see whether the same messages appear. Anne -- New to KDE4? - get help from http://userbase.kde.org Just found a cool new feature? Add it to UserBase
