Description of problem:
I installed FC2 stock and tested the sound on an ogg file with xmms. Sound was ok, but kind of grainy. Turned on the digital output with alsamixer since that is what I normally use. Sound became totally horrible. I just get moments of brief shrill sounds from time to time. it isn't completely distorted but it does NOT sound right even in the moments when it plays. I updated my kernel and alsa-lib and the problem persists. I have never much liked alsa as it doesn't play nice with my digital output, the channels all get messed up and the volume controls don't make a lot of sense, I just have to play with them all until it sounds right. Given how common my card is, it really shouldn't be so difficult to get some decent results out of it. I never had a problem with OSS.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.turn on digital out with a SBLive 5.1
2.Watch your ears bleed
3.Grab tissue to soak up blood

Actual Results:  horrible sounds emitted from the speaker thingies :)

Expected Results:  Should have heard ear pleasing harmonics

Additional info:

Pretty much everything was stock. SBLive 5.1 on a Soltek motherboard (one of the older ones the model escapes me). Athlon 2000+.
Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 01:49:27 EDT
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat.  The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.

If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
