Default Possible SMP Issue?


This is a strange problem - Installed OBSD on new computer with dual
amd64 bit 2.6ghz cpus. I chose the amd64 bit ISO. (I'm using the mp

The problem occurs when starting Firefox and using mplayer. The
sound cuts out and mplayer stops playing and then I get an error in
mplayer saying my system is too slow to play this file.. I'm running
mplayer from aterm with no gui and I'm playing an mp3 file. (Something
isn't right)

I also notice that when I'm playing mp3's with audacious and start
firefox the sound cuts out.

OBSD on a slower single core cpu doesn't have these problems. Any idea
what may be causing this?

You should probably start by posting your dmesg. I honestly do not have any problems with playing MP3 (using madplay from xterm) and running Firefox 3.0.3 (3.0.4 is also back ported but I didn't update).

$ uname -a 
OpenBSD oko.bagdala.net 4.4 GENERIC.MP#1812 amd64
Are you using 4.4 release or current? If you are using current YMMW from week to week depends on what is going on. Recently about 1500 ports fail to compile on current because Perl was broken. Right now
most of Gtk2.0 and Gnome dependent stuff is broken.
