Description of problem:
When I play music files or CDs, after a short while pulseaudio consumes +80% of CPU and the music plays at a much faster rate (like someone has hit the fast forward button).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All latest F11 updates applied as of today.
Play some music, say Rhythmbox and after a few seconds, the above happens.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot system
2. play music files or a music CD via rhythmbox.
Music appears to go in fast forward mode and CPU util goes through the roof.
Able to play music.
See attached from /var/log/messages.
After searching the www, I came across this work-a-round which allows me to listen to music at normal speed :) and is reasonably stable.
diff default.pa.orig default.pa.good
< load-module module-hal-detect
> load-module module-hal-detect tsched=0
Another 'feature' with rythmbox, is that if I skip to the next song, the volume of sound either decreases or ends up muted.
I hope this info means something to you and you are able to help.
snd_pcm_delay/snd_pcm_avail is overflowing. This is a driver bug.
