 I am constantly getting horrible playback on music on my g1, It will
cut out constantly for a second or two, I finally caught it happen
while I had log cat running, anyone know what this error is from and
how to fix it?  I am running the latest cyanogen mod but this was
happening to me way back when I was running regular tmobile cupcake
(actually the reason I rooted, because I thought It was a memory
issue)  anyways here is the log message.

 I noticed the same thing when playing OGG files through the
MediaPlayer.  In my game FRG, the draw/update thread probably swallows
a large portion of CPU time causing the occasional skip.  Music also
tends to skip when the garbage collector runs.  The problem doesn't
happen for me if I play MP3s through the MediaPlayer.  Unfortunately
MP3s seem to have a fraction of a second delay when starting while
OGGs do not.

I've also noticed the AudioFlinger issues but they don't seem to
correlate with the pauses I experience.  I've never had write blocks
for the amount of times you've listed though.

Anybody else have similar issues?

 I have a similar problem when piping music through bluetooth to my
motorcycle helmet.  I get a lot of skips and pauses sometimes.  It
also happened to me both before I rooted, and while I was on JF &
Cyanogen's ROMs.  I'm not sure how to run a log, but if you can give
me the steps I'll be happy to do so.

 if you are rooted you can open the terminal and type

logcat -help

to show a list of logcat commands, to save the file i think its
logcat -c "filename"  or something

I use eclipse and the sdk to view the logcat, which is much easier and
color codes and you can copy lines out of it, but if you don't have
eclipse set up its a lot to go through to explain how but you can
visit the android sdk site for detailed instructions on how to it all

 also, you can search logcat on the market and there is an app called
logcollector that will email the log to you , doesn't require root

2. Googlenav package

I can't import package in my class (SDK 1.0)
