Description Holger Koch 2004-06-09 04:52:50 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
I installed FC-2 x86_64 on my Laptop ( AMD Mobile Athlon64 (2800+ 
MHz, 1 MByte L2-Cache), VIA K8T800, VIA 
Technologies|VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller).

After Reboot, all looks good. The module snd_mixer_oss, 
di,snd_seq_device are loaded.

When i run "soundcard detection", i see my soundcard and the Modul: 
snd-via82xx. But if i play the "test sound", i hear the sound absolut 
distorted. It played a small part of the sound and then loop the end. 
Then play the next part and loop again, and so on. 

The top command shows me, that at the moment i start the "test 
sound", the cpu load grows rapid. Before, the cpu is idle at 99%. 
During the test sound, i have nearly 20% user Load and 70%wa, nearly 
0% idle. So i think, there is no more CPU to play the test sound, no 
data are transmitted to the soundcard and so the sound loops.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start of fedora runlevel 5
2.run "soundcard detection"
3.play testsound

Actual Results:  i hear crazy sound and the cpu is under heavy load.
