I am using qjackctl/jack and darksnow/darkice (frontend/backend)
I am encountering such errors when timing is not right, i.e. rdairplay  
"sends" audio faster than jack is receiving or darkice has a problem  
with bandwith and can't send fast enough, therefore not taking in  
audio fast enough.

As far as I know, these settings should be the same in all  
applications in an "audio row", i.e. rdairplay -> jack -> icecast.  
Using the respective frontends, configuration will be a lot easier.  
Jack is taking various timing/samplerate-settings, several good  
examples are on the net somewhere.
