Corrupted sound + video, Should i reinstall?


Hmm, where to start?

#1 I just started noticing this but I think it has been going on for a while now. When ever the CPU is under moderate usage the sound starts making random popping and clicking noises. In xmms, I can see the pops in the analyzer. In addition to this, whenever I dial to the internet, the sound gets corrupted. I think that this might be tied to #2. I have a Soundblaster Live! card.

#2 I had just attempted to upgrade my kernel, and it worked! YAY! but then I realized that ALSA didnt work. So I returned to my old kernel and remade my NVIDIA drivers. Now, There are little red pixels on my monitor sometimes, and the titlebars get discolored. The thing is, before I recompiled them, they worked fine. Is the package somehow corrupted now? I have dial up and i don't want to re-download all 8 MBs of the driver.

#3 On SuSE, is there any way to see which packages aren't being used by anything? I really want to free up some disk space, and I have all these random RPMS installed. Im not sure which ones i can remove.

Thats all i can think of right now. I did a lot of *experimenting* on this install of SuSE and so I'm sure things are messed up. My idea of learning is to delete something and see what goes wrong Should i just do a fresh install and start over?

For some reason Totem works just fine. XMMS with the ALSA plugin or the OSS plugin produces scratches. Mplayer also produces scratching. If i nice em they dont produces scratches most of the time. I think I fixed my graphics problem by updating the drivers.
