I had oss sound working fine in Linux (RH9), then stupidly decided to try and upgrade to alsa. I installed alsa, alsa-driver but was unable to get a kernel-module-alsa for 2.4.20-8 kernel. When I removed the alsa packages and rebooted I found cd audio playback was fine but Mp3 playback (through xmms) was very choppy.
<edit> This is not an xmms problem.</edit>
I have run sndconfig and redhat gui sound config program, my soundcard is detected and modules.conf is written fine but the choppy playback continues.
<edit> The sound sample played by sndconfig plays fine but the sample played by the redhat gui is choppy</edit>
I have included modules.conf if anyone has any idea as to what excactly has gotten messed up with oss sound I'd be very happy to hear about it. I never had this problem before I started playing around with the alsa packages
Thanks for any and all help.

Ps I also have "Enable sound server startup" checked under sound preferences in KDE, sound server is esd.
ps -aux | grep esd
esd -terminate -nobeeps -as 2 -spawnfd 15
pps I'd like to avoid having to compile packages/kernel, just want oss back to normal.
If it aint broke etc.
