OK, got a brand new hard drive and installed 64bit 12.04 on it. The machine is an HP Pavillion Media Center, with 8GB memory and it is about 5 years old. Everything went well except when I attempt to play mp3 music from my files in Amorak or Guyadeque I get a brief instance of sound then mute, it the stuff plays at all. I have no problem with Audacious or VLM, movies seem to play fine. I seem to recall seeing threads about this behavior here but attempts to do a search comes up with nothing. Is Amorak and Guyadeque incompatible with 64bit 12.04? I do a sound check using the "sound" app in System Settings and the sound checks out. It seems to be an issue with these two applications.
