OK, I thought this might have been my imagingation, so I installed Mandy 8.0 on a spare partition (you know, everyone should have a partition just lying around...
) and confirmed my suspicions. The sound from my SB Live is awful in Mandy 8.1 compared to 8.0.
Mandy 8.0 loads the modules sound, soundcore,
, whereas Mandy 8.1 loads ac97_codec
aswell. I suspect this is the candidate for the problems.
Has anyone else suffered this, and since I'll be d/l 8.2 in a few days (when the bloody room with 250Mb zip drives opens again...pah, bloody 100Mb drives), can you tell me if it's been sorted?
I can't remember what the sound is like in Slack, because I generally don't use it much.
