It just seems weird because im using the original firmware and not running ML. Is it possible the canon firmware got modified?

Try "clear settings" from Canon menu.

You need to press CTRL-C a few times if you see it locked up.

any ideas how to figure out why the camera speaker doesn't work?
Put a recent audio.c from 550D.

i don't think is locked up alex, once in a blue moon it displays a message. I believe the last one that i've seen yesterday was "merging"...or something like this. i'm running ubuntu under vmware so the IO is on the slow side. I assign 4 procs to ubuntu but that didn't seem to make it faster.

i'm pretty sure i have the most recent audio.c from 550D, i will double check. should i get the one from official ML repo or the one from your fork?

My fork is ancient now, get the one from the main repo.

For built-in speaker, the trick is to skip configuring the audio card in Play mode (look for Deti's messages in the mailing list, he sent this patch right after I've released the 0.2.0 build).

Yup, found that out the hard way too. You can do a "watch -n 10 kill -2 PID" in a separate terminal and leave it crunch overnight, it'll send a interrupt signal every 10 minutes, with PID the Process ID of the python instance.

Coutts, To see install instructions look at http://magiclantern.wikia.com/wiki/500D
The steps are basically to follow http://magiclantern.wikia.com/wiki/550d_install (Skip step 0 and use Chuchin's FIR file)

Does the 2/15 VRAM adjustment allow the intervalometer to keep running without memory leaks now?

Try it and tell us ;)
