Description of problem:
I am running RH 7.1 on an IBM ThinkPad X20.  This machine has a cs4281
sound chip.  This
configuration worked fine with the 2.2.19 kernel under RH 7.0.  I am
currently running RH 7.1 with
2.4.3, and when playing sound with XMMS, the sound occassionally (every
10-20s) skips
or pops briefly.

My modules.conf has the following lines:

alias eth0 eepro100 
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc 
alias usb-controller usb-uhci 
alias eth1  wvlan_cs

alias sound-slot-0 cs4281 
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null
2>&1 || : 
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null
2>&1 || : 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Play an mp3 file with XMMS on an IBM ThinkPad x20 with a 2.4.x kernel

Actual Results:  Occassionally, the sound skips or pops during playback.

Expected Results:  There should be no popping in the playback

Additional info:

This worked fine under kernel 2.2.19

It is interesting that this bug is similar, but not identical to bug

 We are using the same RH7.1 kernel, similar but not identical audio chip
 and laptop models.  XMMS fails completely on the IBM TP 770Z and play
 acts like the XMMS on the IBM TP X20.

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/
