Quake 2 sound stuttering - can I cure this?

where 'quake2' is the name of your quake executable.
echo "quake2 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss
echo "quake2.real 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss

Using those two "before" running quake2 seems to have fixed my stutter.
- Debian testing
- kernel 2.4.31
- intel 810 sound (snd-intel8x0)
- alsa 1.0.9

The quakeforge version seems to have had the same stutter issue. qw-client-glx

I too tried various other things. I got it to not stutter piping it through artsdsp -m <app>, but that adds about a second lag between sound event and actual sound on my system. The other echos seem to fix the stutter without significant latency issues. I don't normally run any sound daemons except on rare occassion I use jackd when using rosegarden4 to create midi music.
