I watched some tv that is in a .avi file yesterday everything worked fine but this morning (and now) the audio stops working after 5 seconds and the video gets jumpy.

Info, 11.04, asus 1201n, both vlc and movie player has the error.

Stefano Palazzo helped with this. sudo gedit /var/log/apt/history.log .

this update was the last one.

Open Synaptic, File -> History. This should tell you what was updated yesterday. – nickguletskii Jun 21 '11 at 12:04
I do all my updates by typing sudo apt-get update followed by sudo apt-get upgrade and that isn't shown there, (my last update is from 3 weeks ago.) – Alvar Jun 21 '11 at 12:11
you can check out /var/log/apt/history.log as well – Stefano Palazzo Jun 21 '11 at 12:17
Please check how much resources does indicator-multiload use if you use it. – nickguletskii Jun 21 '11 at 19:27
not all of it, I have free ram (45% used) and free cpu (about 35% used). – Alvar Jun 21 '11 at 21:40
