Hello Andrea,

I backed out this patch and it did not help. But I checked with top
and alsaplayer is in status D and hanging in waitchannel wait_on_p
(probably wait_on_paige). Furthermore there are lots of other processes
waiting in wait_on_p and wait_on_b. Since the problem might be I/O
related here is the output of hdparm /dev/hda:

multcount = 16 (on)
I/O support = 1 (32-bit)
unmaskirq = 1 (on)
using_dma = 1 (on)
keepsettings = 0 (off)
nowerr = 0 (off)
readonly = 0 (off)
readahead = 8 (on)
geometry = 3165/255/63, sectors = 50859648, start = 0

Hope this helps. If you need further testing just let me know.




Well, yeah ... I suppose there's no point in getting greedy, is there?
