I've made some discoveries that discredit my previous assertion that the ata driver is to blame. I created a memory disk using mdconfig and copied a video to it and still got dropped frames when when performing the above command. I had somebody who owns a different motherboard but which uses the same IDE chipset to perform the same steps and he didn't experience any dropped frames. -- Never let your schooling interfere with your education. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
