Thanks Carmen. I'll have a look at that tomorow. It's getting a bit late here
now, and my brains feeling a bit fried. My jack-audio-connection-kit on FC2
is only version-0.99.36-0.2.cvs.rhfc2.ccrma, so perhaps I may have problems
with that. Are these denormals problems you are talking about that are
causing the jackd segfaults?

I'll also have a good look at Mplayer to make sure it's using Alsa. The
version I have installed is MPlayer-1.0pre7try2.tar.bz2. I'll look for an
update for it, and also for FFMPEG.
