Description Tom Tromey 2008-06-30 16:29:43 EDT
Description of problem:

Sometime recently I "yum update"d my F8 box.  After this update,
all songs sound like they are sung by the chipmunks -- the playback
is too fast.

After some debugging on #pulseaudio we concluded that this is an alsa
problem.  (I disabled pulseaudio and used mplayer's alsa back end to
verify the problem remained.)


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

opsy. uname -a
Linux opsy 2.6.25.6-27.fc8 #1 SMP Fri Jun 13 16:38:52 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386
GNU/Linux

/proc/asound/cards says:

opsy. cat /proc/asound/cards
 0 [I82801BAICH2   ]: ICH - Intel 82801BA-ICH2
                      Intel 82801BA-ICH2 with AD1885 at irq 17

opsy. grep 'front DAC' /proc/asound/card0/codec97#0/ac97#0-0
PCM front DAC    : 48000Hz

Also, saw this in /var/log/messages:

Jun 29 08:58:03 opsy kernel: intel8x0_measure_ac97_clock: measured 50944 usecs
Jun 29 08:58:03 opsy kernel: intel8x0: measured clock 78 rejected
Jun 29 08:58:03 opsy kernel: intel8x0: clocking to 48000


This looks vaguely like this alsa bug report:

Comment 1 Martin Burchell 2008-07-04 19:02:13 EDT
Same problem for me after updating to kernel-2.6.25.9-40.fc8

Adding this line to /etc/modprobe.conf fixed it for me:
options snd-intel8x0 ac97_clock=48000
