Sound issues with USB device, possibly because of Harddrive
I have asked questions about this before, but I don't seem to be getting anywhere.
I have a system taht is running kernel 18.104.22.168, and slackware 10.0. I also have a pair of USB speakers, and a seagate 40gig hard drive.
My problem is this: My sound distorts dramatically when the harddrive is being accessed. There is no problem with this if I use 2.4.22 (or something along those lines), but I can not use this (2.4.22) kernel now, because I upgraded something, and it doesn't work properly any more.
I have tried every thing under the sun, as far as I can work out. So, now I am asking myself if it could be something in teh kernel that is making it that it can't access the harddrive and use music at the same time. The filesystem that I am using by teh way is the risterfs, or how ever it is spelt.
I know that this isn't very discriptive, if anyone has any questions about the system, I am happy to post them.
I really am confussed about what could possibly be going wrong with the computer.
THanks in advance.
