Exclamation audio troubles on mandrake


hallo all,
since december I decided to choose linux, from that day I tried all mdk disrtos from 9.0 to 10 beta2. For all I experienced troubles with the audio system:

*********************************************************************************************
audio starts running, but after a while It crashes and stop working, making most of the applications which try to call audio drivers to crash too.
*********************************************************************************************

that's probably due to Alsa config. but I'm not able to set it for the best. I've tried with alsa project support, but I've understood quiet nothing. In the session drivers my sound card is listed and supported, (Cmedia 8738, shipped on asus mainboard), so I thought maybe is enough to set the config parameters in HardDrake, but again I cant find out what values I gotta enter.

could anyone out there help me?

To configure sound cards in Mandrake up to 9.2, you have to run sndconfig command from a konsole session as root. I have not used any version of Mandrake 10 yet, so I'll leave others to comment on that. It has been a while since I did it, I have always used the defaults, since I have only one sound card installed. I know I set the I/O address to 220, I think I set an IRQ. That was about it.

I had problems playing mp3's with system sounds running. So I stopped the system sounds, and all is well.
