From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

The sound is initialized but plays back at rapid speed when the sound test 
is initialized.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Get a COMPAQ DP EN-866 or better and use the onboard sound
2.Install Wolverine (or fisher or 7.0 for that matter)
3.Run sndconfig and listen...

Actual Results:  Sounds is oversampling

Expected Results:  Sound should sound right

This is also a problem present when OSS is installed.

What driver/chip is that using? (If you don't know, post the output
of 'lspci'.)

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-14 17:05:21 UTC
This should be fixed better in the rawhide kernel; it's a driver issue.

Comment 4 Need Real Name 2001-03-14 17:08:34 UTC
Is rawhide the followup to Wolverine?

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-14 17:09:54 UTC
Rawhide is a rolling, updated snapshot of our development tree.


Comment 6 Need Real Name 2001-03-14 17:19:52 UTC
Should I grab some packages from rawhide to fix this problem or not?

Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-14 17:38:12 UTC
The kernel in rawhide should work better for this sound chip.

Comment 8 Need Real Name 2001-03-27 13:46:41 UTC
This kernel still does not fix the problem.  Just an FYI, I'm not too worried 
about the sound.  It does detect the sound card and I can hear the sample being 
played but, it still sounds like the munchkins from The Wizard of OZ.

Comment 9 Doug Ledford 2001-04-20 02:50:00 UTC
If this still happens with 7.1 then it isn't a driver bug, it's a hardware
limitation.  Additionally, with the final 7.1 product, even if it doesn't sound
right when running the simple sound test, things like xmms should sound OK when
playing music (the program that plays the simple sound test during sound card
configuration doesn't know how to upsample the sound from 8kHz to the required
speed, so it sounds off, but it is the sox program's responsibility to upsample
sounds when the driver doesn't support the request speed/sample size, which is
the case with your machine).
