Hello! First of all let me say that I'm still fairly new to Linux. I'm using Ubuntu, Dapper Drake, 6.06 LTS and I'm very impressed with it so far.
Aside from a squiggly little video issue which I managed to squash on my own, I now have an issue where I'm noticing that sound and audio play a little later then they should.
For example, when I click upon a button or perform a task that should produce a sound (usually within a game, but not always), there is a delay between the time that it should play, and the time it actually does. This is very noticable and is usually around 1 - 2 seconds.
I also forgot to mention, and I don't know if this is a Linux issue or not, but some apps seem to take over sound completely. For example, when playing Google Videos in Firefox, I can no longer hear IM notifications from Gaim, or sounds from the Linux port of NWN.
Edit: The sound is integrated onto the motherboard, which is an Asus A7N8X Deluxe, with an nVidia nForce 2 chipset and an onboard AC'97 sound controller. You can find more details here: http://www.driverheaven.net/reviews/asus/index.html
If you need more information, simply ask. I'd be happy to oblige.
Thanks in advance!
