Description of problem:
Run Software that connected the alsasubsystem, like CD-Player (Gnome) or Mplayer,
one side of the soundboxes delivered not regular noices! Hope you can recognize my problem. I have a SB 16 PCI Soundcard inside; it was detected as a Ensoniq 5880 Audio PCI (rev 02).Its quasi a standardcard under unixsystems, and works with the opensoundsystem (oss) perfectly. Please get a way to fix the problem!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-4.4.1-22/ Kernel: Linux fedora 184.108.40.206 (vanilla)
Steps to Reproduce:
1.I download original driver from oss http://www.opensound.com/ it works perfectly!
Actual Results: Everythings works fine after installing oss from above! PS: The oss-kerneldriver does not work (everytime??) unter FC4?
For better understanding: Only problems above with alsa!!! Changed to oss,
everythinks works fine, why?
It's because ALSA is still new and under development. If it works fine under oss
it will be hopefuly fixed in some new alsa version.
btw. some how-to for new drivers on FC-4 is here:
