Debian, Gnome. Sound is choppy.


Ok,

Hello everybody, my first post.

I have installed Debian with X enviroment, web server, file server, and the sort. It installed very nicely, and was easy to set up with no errors.

I boot, log in with GNOME, wanted to test a music file, and that's where the madness begins.

The sound is very choppy, and it is not possible to hear anything, exept very choppy sound.

I have not recieved any errors what so ever, and the system sounds play nicely (log in, notifications, etc.). I also tried watching a flash movie. The movie worked fine, but the sound was the same.

Please help me with this, if you have a solution.

check the volume control and make sure that the pcm control is no more then 3/4 of the way up , any more on mine and the sound goes really crackly and things.

What program are you using the play sounds?

And, for future reference, you might wantur own to wait more than an hour to bump your own posts.

Try # alsaconf, then make sure all your sound programs have their options set to use the alsa plugin for sound i/o

Ok, it says that i have no PnP or PCI card available. Then it asks me if I want to probe legacy ICA sound cards/chips, but it will make my system unstable... would this be a problem?

hmm
do you happen to know what kind of card you have?

You should give it a try, and see what happens.


It's really odd that sound is working, yes alsaconf says you have no cards...
