After an upgrade to kernel-2.4.9-34
sblive stopped working.
both drivers emu10k1 and emu10k1_new
give noice while playing .wav files.
There was no such problem with kernel-2.4.7-10
The problem is similar to closed bug:
It was not really fixed.
Strange thing that while
play file.wav (which uses /dev/audio )
gives just noice the command
/usr/bin/esdplay file.wav (which uses /dev/dsp)
plays sound OK
Sometimes after running
few times the command
starts producing the right sound.
But after running play file.wav
few times the same noise is starting again
on play file.wav
It looks like some uninitialized variable
play file.wav may work OK, and may not work OK.
but right after edsplay file.wav it always OK.
esdplay file.way is almost OK,
sometimes there is an extra high frequency noice,
but this happen seldomly.
