ESS Maestro And Mandrake 10.1 Issues

I have just installed a fresh copy of Mandrake 10.1 onto my Dell Inspiron 4000 Laptop. It uses a ESS Maestro sound card. Well when I installed 10.0 on it I had no issues with the sound and everything was running right out of the box. However, in 10.1 when ever a sound is played or try playing anything such as an mp3 or mpg all I get is loud static and nothing else.

Anyone have any clue to cure this problem, as I really like the updates in 10.1.

ok - here's the fix.

on drakconf go to the hardware section. Select the hardware and then then sound card. Run the config tool and change the driver from maestro to snd-maestro. Reboot and should work fine - did for me..
