I'm still at the "figure out what the problem even is" stage of troubleshooting.
The symptom: Amarok is skipping every few minutes in an up-to-date installation of Ubuntu 10.10.
What I've checked so far:
- Movie Player (Totem) does not skip when playing the same files.
- The skips do not correlate with increased CPU, memory, disk, or network usage.
amarok --debugdoes not output anything when a skip occurs.
Where should one look to troubleshoot skipping audio?
