rtc lost interrupts problem...


Alright.. something's been happening to my system lately... And i'm not sure if its kernel related. But i think it started with 2.6.12.2 and 3....

I can't, for the life of me, start mplayer or gmplayer when double clicking an .avi file anymore... No matter how many times i double click it, press enter, right click > properties > assign to gmplayer or mplayer.. tried everything. IT just stopped working.

If i start it with
gmplayer &
it crashes on load.

if i start is from cli with just
gmplayer
it works, but eventually i get this error in dmesg

rtc: lost some interrupts at 1024Hz.

Which i've never seen before, and sounds scary...

Maybe try to recompile mplayer ?

What is your output with :
cat /proc/sys/dev/rtc/max-user-freq

p# cat /proc/sys/dev/rtc/max-user-freq
64


Also, amarok crashes for no reason sometimes, and my scsi connection (usb2) is dying with weird errors (which ill print again as soon as i generate them again)... But i'll leave these for another time/topic

I have added in my rc.local :
echo 1024 > /proc/sys/dev/rtc/max-user-freq

Mplayer use rtc (Real Time Clock) to sync audio with video
so set max-user-freq to 1024 helps a little

What is the error output when you use :
mplayer file.avi

Well, appart from the SSE2 not being enabled, and font error, there are no errors when loading up gmplayer from the CLI.. My problem is that it refuses to load from konqueror anymore.. no matter how many times i double click or assign it to gmplayer.


Code:

In other news, i keep getting tonns of these errors
Code:
FAT: Directory bread(block 19027) failed
scsi0 (0:0): rejecting I/O to dead device
FAT: Directory bread(block 19028) failed
scsi0 (0:0): rejecting I/O to dead device

FAT: Directory bread(block 19030) failed
scsi0 (0:0): rejecting I/O to dead device
FAT: Directory bread(block 19031) failed
And when trying to burn a dvd
Code:
SCSI error : <1 0 0 0> return code = 0x70000
Code:
scsi0 (0:0): rejecting I/O to dead device
And another serious error message that i'm trying to generate again... I end up with defunct processes, k3b wouldnt shut down, and the device wouldn't disconnect.. I end up rebooting.

Seems like an USB problem to me, something has to be done
with USB driver.
If USB 2.0, it is ehci_hcd and in this case I'd try plug the
USB device to an USB 1.1 port just to see

At the end, did you find out where was the problem ? is it solved ?
