Interesting I did a clean install of Dapper Drake and I find now I get stuttering sound only at the login - you know the drum sound - this repeats (echos) maybe 2-3 times. Only other place I notice this is on mikmod when I press Q to quit. The song playing quits only after stuttering the current song segment 3-4 times.
This is very strange as it is a clean re-install. The soundcard is a soundblaster live and is fine in windows. It was also find during the first ubuntu Dapper drake install I did. I did the reinstall to check if it was one if the codecs I had choosen. Obviously not the codec when I booted up the installer cd as I heard the login stutter. Anyone else having sound stutters? Generally not a problem, only at login/logout or when playing mikmod - when exiting.
