Description Todd A. Jacobs 2003-06-24 18:30:51 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20030131

Description of problem:
Audio sounds choppy and full of static, sort of like a bad FM channel. The
onboard soundcard appears to be sharing an IRQ with USB, but the BIOS does not
support assigning specific IRQs, and /usr/src/linux-2.4/Documentation/sound/
contains no documentation related to modifying the driver's settings. 

Here is the relevant output from various utilities.

From procinfo:
    irq  9:     94314 usb-ohci, SiS 7012

From dmesg:
    Intel 810 + AC97 Audio, version 0.24, 07:13:38 May 29 2003
    i810: SiS 7012 found at IO 0xd400 and 0xd000, MEM 0x0000 and 0x0000, IRQ 9
    i810_audio: Audio Controller supports 6 channels.
    i810_audio: Defaulting to base 2 channel mode.
    i810_audio: Resetting connection 0
    ac97_codec: AC97 Audio codec, id: ALG32 (ALC650)
    i810_audio: AC'97 codec 0 supports AMAP, total channels = 6 

From lsmod:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  Poor quality sound.

Expected Results:  Normal sound output.

Additional info:

Files play fine on different machine with a different onboard soundcard and
running RH 8.0.
