Description Need Real Name 2000-12-28 23:06:22 UTC
I have upgraded from redhat linux 6.0 to 7.0 on my
computer. Here i had the ess solo-1 soundcard, which earlier
was not supported, therefore i used a driver from opensound, which worked 
well. But the upgrade to 7.0 seemed to overwrite this driver, and now there
is a loud click (which was not there before) each time a sound file is 
played from an editor. However
playing CD's works fine.
 I installed Redhat 7.0 on another computer, with a crystal soundcard,
from scratch. Also here, playing sounds from an editor makes loud clicks.
I hope this can be fixed.

This sounds like issues with the drivers themselves. Assigning to the kernel.

I don't know if this is the same bug, but I'm having a problem with bad sound
with an AWE 64 PNP.  Basically, it sounds like the speaker is underwater.  I had
this problem with stock 6.2 IIRC, but the updated kernel fixed it.  With Red Hat
7.0, its back.

I have encountered this on my via686a sound and discovered that switching from
the regular kernel sound drivers to the ALSA (www.alsa-project.org) drivers gets
rid of the sound artifacts. The ALSA drivers have to be manually compiled and
require some modules.conf editing but it is all well documented. I'm not sure
what is missing in the regular kernel sound drivers that is fixed in the ALSA ones.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
