Using sndconfig from Florence RC2 on a Dell Latitude CPiA laptop with
NM256AV sound chip.
sndconfig looks for module nm256.o, which has been renamed nm256_audio.o in
the kernel modules. Thus, sndconfig fails.
I added a symlink between nm256.o -> nm256_audio.o.
Now sndconfig complains: modprobe: can't locate module sound-slot-0
A manual modprobe of nm256_audio works just fine, and I get working sound.
Gnome sounds sound just fine, but xmms playing MP3s come out a bit slow
(like waiting for the singer of the national anthem, who's taking her own
sweet time, speeding up and slowing down for dramatic effect) and sound
The nm256 -> nm256_audio will be fixed in kudzu-0.97.5-1 when it's built.
The slow sound problem seems specific to xmms. Using MusicMatch Jukebox, it
sounds just fine. I'll open that part as a bug against xmms?
What is MusicMatch Jukebox?
Do they play uniformly slow, or just inconsistently?
(opened a bug against xmms, 30695)
www.musicmatch.com has a MP3 player (free) for Linux (uses wine).
mpg123 plays the songs just fine.
Only xmms plays them poorly. It's inconsistent. It's ok briefly, then slow,
then ok, then slow...
