Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 10016
xmms plays slow
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:12:53 EDT
Xmms works but plays everything at ~1/4 speed. It's kind of humorous but
not too usefull.
Which sound card?
The machine is a Compaq Professional workstation 1000/500 with an ESS ES1888
AudioDrive sound card. It uses the Yamaha OPL3 synth.
Try setting esstype=
688, 1688, 1868, 1869, 1788, 1887, 1888
until you find one that works.
I have tried the ones that are in sndconfig,688, 1688,1868. However I was
unsure of how to specify the ess type outside of sndconfig.
None of these three worked correctly with xmms. The sound samples during the
running of sndconfig all worked fine.
You can set them by adding
esstype=<the number> to the end of the
'options sb' line in /etc/conf.modules.
Then reload the sound driver, by running
'modprobe -r sb ; modprobe sb'.
Thanks, The 1788 did the trick for xmms, which works great now. However I
could not get mpg123 to work. It has the same sympotms that xmms has using the
