Choppy audio on music cd's on XFCE4--and not in LXDE


After a time consuming effort to get the choppiness of audio to disappear, I got it work on LXDE.

What doesn't make sense to me, it is still choppy on XFCE4.

Anybody know of this problem and a solution?

6 gig ram. Didn't change cache settings. Installed x86_64. mplayer with all the codecs, and vlc. No problems with audio elsewhere, and DVD playing is perfect.

Getting Arch to work and getting my apps all up and running has been a blast, although time consuming.

Check this,
Code:
@audio          -       rtprio          65
@audio          -       nice           -10
in /etc/security/limits.conf and play a bit with the values to get better results.
There are some guidelines commented above this point in limits.conf

Thanks. I've played with the settings. I have the choppiness reduced on XFCE.


Will continue to play to see if I can completely eliminate it.
