config PIII 600,256mo sdram133,bios ami,soundcard aureal au8810. Clean standard install of fc4 (the similar install options like my previous fc1,2,3...) with gnome+kde, firewall off or on ,SEL off or on (same issue), upgrade to kernel 2.6.12-1.1398,sound server=esd ou not, I use gnome :
the sound is distorted under all multi-media readers applications (from totem to xine): slightly accelerated by jerks, with crackings and very small cracklings from time to time, I tried many options but can't escape this "buggy sound" - I made the differents upgrades (kernel,alsa...). the driver for the aureal au8810 was included in alsa since kernel 2.6 and I get the correct sound from fc1 to fc3 (this one upgrade with differents kernel)
I try alsa oss arts esd etc but no way
what I can notice, is that in multimedia systems selector (desktop preferences) the audio defaut source input 'alsa' gave me this error 'Failed to construct test pipeline for 'ALSA - Advanced Linux Sound Architecture'
so I need your precious lights this time, because music is essential for me.
sorry for my english
