Sound + USB - IRQ issue?


Whenever I hear a sound in Gaim, the sound loops over and over. This looping continues until I move my USB mouse. Weirdness.

I have an ATI sound card (atiixp) using Alsa drivers on IRQ 10
a NEC OHCI-compatable USB controller on IRQ 10
a ATI OHCI-compatable USB controller on IRQ 11
Occurs even when USB mouse is not plugged in - must plug in mouse to stop looping
I have tried this on kernel 2.6.8-mm4 and just today on 2.6.9 (need newer kernel for sound driver)
Have tried having USB drivers compiled in, module, and removed entirely - no change (actually, I cannot stop sound from looping whithout USB drivers!)
Have tried on multiple versions of Gaim
Arts and ESD exhibit the same behavior, although running these makes xmms loop as well
Slackware 10, slapt-get --upgrade to slackware-current

lspci -v

Any ideas on what I can do?

if you're able to assign the usb another irq in the bios do so. if not you can try to plug your pci cards in other slots. this will pnp-assign other irqs to them, but it may take a few attempts to get a usable order.

good luck.

oops. yeah.. pnp is a mess. can you NOT assign the specific irq in your bios? aka isa mode for that irq?
