I see the "hate Unix" angle tho I'd call it a bit strong...

But trying to destroy what everyone else is perfectly happy with??

How is simply writing some software, which after all is FLOSS and which
nobody is forced to use, "destroying"? They're taking their own software
where their vision points it, no more, no less. I don't really agree
with where it's going either, but that's part of the very freedom of the
FLOSS community we're all a part of. Others can fork the software or
provide less integrated substitutes, if desired. Meanwhile, if it's what
other coders choose to build on, well, they're free to do that too. It
doesn't mean I have to use their software!

FWIW, that's one reason I'm no longer using kmail, for instance. When
kmail akonadified, I tried it, then switched to claws-mail. It's ALSO one
reason I'm using gentoo, I get to choose whether I build kde with akonadi
and semantic-desktop support, or not. And I choose not. I see the kdepim
folks vision, and they're free to pursue it, but their path and my path
simply diverged, that's all. Kde runs SO much nicer without the weight
of semantic-desktop dragging it down.

And if the systemd and udev path fully merge, I'll have a choice at that
point. If systemd looks mature and stable enough at that point to be
used on my system, I'll probably try it. I might like it. =:^) Or, like
akonadified kmail, I may find it a rube goldberg of a system that I'd
rather stay away from. Given history, I'm sure there will be alternate
solutions available, tho it'll no doubt take some serious work and
adaptation on my part to switch.

FWIW, I see the gregkh post you were referring to, now. Odd indeed, tho
he just said rude, not trash talk.

FWIW2, I'd have probably included a "IME" (in my experience) disclaimer
to that failaudio, tho I don't disagree with that label. Toning down may
be worthwhile for all sides, tho. This isn't lkml and I don't think most
would want it to be.

apropos of what?

Red Book audio format *is* a WAV format - as described above.


Go back, re-read the articles you quote in full, find something else to
argue the toss on. And enjoy your Friday night.


Kind regards

Did I say any of that?

I have no idea why you are comparing me to anyone else. Who ever said
that those links are acceptable behavior either? I never did.

Finally, I found something. It's Dolphin!

I've done some longer testing, always playing the same video parallel
with a dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/10G bs=1M count=10000, in mplayer, for a
minute, several times. When I do this by opening the file in Dolphin, I
get about 15 interruptions, some for longer than a second. Started on the
command line, there are very few, I can play the video for minutes
without a gap. Hooray!

In KDE, I usually play videos by opening them in Dolphin. I exchanged
'mplayer %U' by 'xterm -T MPLAYER -e mplayer %U' in the settings, now
mplayer runs in a terminal, and all is fine. I created a window rule so
the terminal automatically minimizes. Cool!

It only happens in mplayer and mplayer2. Other players work fine, but I
like mplayer best, and prefer to run it without any window decoration.

Now, would this be an MPlayer problem, or one of Dolphin?
