Description Bill Foskett 2002-10-25 11:31:46 EDT
Description of Problem:  The kernel module esssolo1 does not correctly work on
the IBM Thinkpad 390x(2626-H0U) which has the ESS1969 chip according to kudzu.
The only time it will correctly play a sound is when using the play command from
a terminal window on a simple .wav file.  When trying to play MP3's with
XMMS(upgraded), the play command on some .wav files and videos the sound comes
out slow and choppy.   

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):kernel 2.4.18-14

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH8.0 on an IBM Thinkpad
2. try to play most any sound format file

Actual Results:Bad sound output

Expected Results:Good sound output

Additional Information: This same system had Windows installed on it so I know
that the hardware is good.  I've tried to manually configure the
/etc/modules.conf file with parameters such as "options esssolo1 irq=5" but I
get an error message when reloading the module saying "invalid argument" or
something like that.  I've compiled the 2.4.19 kernel and get the same results.

I installed Quake 2 and the sound is fine.  I am not sure now where the problem
is.  Whether it is in the xine and XMMS or the sound module.

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/
