Description Tom Jones 2000-03-06 21:10:53 UTC
Xmms works but plays everything at ~1/4 speed.  It's kind of humorous but
not too usefull.


Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-03-06 21:13:59 UTC
Which sound card?

Comment 2 Tom Jones 2000-03-06 21:41:59 UTC
The machine is a Compaq Professional workstation 1000/500 with an ESS ES1888
AudioDrive sound card.  It uses the Yamaha OPL3 synth.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-03-06 21:44:59 UTC
Try setting esstype=
one of:
688, 1688, 1868, 1869, 1788, 1887, 1888

until you find one that works.

Comment 4 Tom Jones 2000-03-08 15:03:59 UTC

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.

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2000-03-08 15:08:59 UTC
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'.

Comment 6 Tom Jones 2000-03-09 14:35:59 UTC
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
other esstypes...
