Description of problem:
With FC2 on this PC, sound worked fine.  With FC3, the Soundcard
Detection app has a 'Play Test Sound'.  That test sound takes at least
5 times as long as it should and it's choppy.  xmms plays .ogg files,
but every few seconds the sound skips.  I updated arts, but nothing
changed.  I changed xmms settings from 'Alsa' to 'OSS' and nothing

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try test sound in 'Soundcard Detection' menu item.
2. Or use xmms to play .ogg files.

Actual Results:  Test sound extremely choppy, takes at least 5 times
as long as it should to play.  Xmms plays well but every few seconds
it skips.

Expected Results:  Test sound should play ok.  xmms should play
without skips.

Additional info:

The sound card is being detected as a:

An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem

Thank you.
