Hey Roland. Yeah, back when I was looking into amd64 vs i386 version and
had a thread going that you replied to, I checked out your website and
saw your FreeBSD settings. :)
I tried that device.hints setting on my backup Athlon XP 2000+ machine
with just onboard sound and that seemed to make it worse. Maybe because
it was crummy onboard. This machine runs an Audigy 2 Platinum.
If it was just the sound doing this and not the mouse and display
freezing as well as any video playing then I think it would be much
easier to troubleshoot and pinpoint.
I could try -STABLE on that spare hard drive though.
P.S. On an unrelated note, is there any "changelog" or anything for
-STABLE to see what changes have been made?
