I'm using Slackware Linux 12.2 and built from source using a SlackBuild script.
I have been using mp3blaster just fine for over a week now. Initially it would skip whenever I played a song: play for 3 seconds, then skip 2 seconds, then repeat. I configured it for alsa playback as suggested in the FAQ, and then things worked just fine until today.
Now it's skipping as described above on EVERY song. I have restarted it and reset the environment variables about ten times and it still does it.
Two potential problems: I had both Firefox and Last.fm (the application) open when I started playing (the same mp3blaster session that had worked fine for a week). However, I had these applications open before with no problems in mp3blaster. The other was that I navigated through the playlist using down-arrow. Could I have changed some speed setting? That shouldn't affect it after I quit and restarted mp3blaster.
I have tried upping the number of threads as well; the default is now set at 250, and with now effect on the skipping.
Does anyone know how to solve this once and for all?
