made the switch to slack, but have a sound prob


ll sound has bad static?? I have tried all kinds of stuff that i know how to do. But nothing seems to clear up the static.

Im using Slack 9.1
Sound card is onboard VT8233 using the snd-via82xx driver.
this static happens from games and xmms etc...

any ideas on what to try??
