I got exactly the same with the onboard soundcard on the asus p4p800
motherboard and FC3T2. The standard installation of FC3T1 does sound

note that the smae problem was reported also in bug #133139


Comment 2 J.Jansen 2004-09-21 17:30:21 EDT
The simple solution is to upgrade the system-config-soundcard package
to 1.2.9.
