View Full Version : [xubuntu] Sound (still) broken in 9.10

So. In 9.04 ALSA and MPD were working perfectly. In 9.10 they have several issues.

MPD either just doesn't play (progress stuck at 0:00) or skips and stutters constantly. mplayer usually plays, but sometimes doesn't make any sound.

I installed PulseAudio (actually, I installed gnome-control-center and for some reason it drug in PA and a huge load of other junk), and it doesn't work properly either. After a few minutes (almost immediately if pavucontrol is ever opened), the sound just becomes a mess of crackling and popping and PA starts allocating a ton of memory.

I've tried everything I've read around here and nothing has worked.
