Hmm, I'm using just a GENERIC kernel with support added in for my sound
driver and atapicam for K3b. SCHED_4BSD looks default in GENERIC:
options SCHED_4BSD # 4BSD scheduler
I've been trying this morning with no real disk I/O and just XMMS open.
It's much better than if I did have a download/upload going using disk
I/O or trying to read from a file on the drive, but still nowhere near
perfect. Every minute I'll still hear a little skip or stutter in the
audio, and still notice the mouse locking up a bit at the exact moment
So you have no similar problems in -STABLE? How about when untarring a
bigger file and playing audio? If not, then maybe trying STABLE on that
other drive might be a good idea.
The reason I wanted to see any changelog was to see if there is any
changes to this part of the code at all before trying it, but file by
file I would probably be lost since I am not a programmer.
