Problems in RH 9 with alsa and esd oss works fine (VIA VT8233)

When running programs that uses esd (and a lot of them does) they freeze often crashing X as well.

When trying to start esd it will also freeze (though not X) with a scratchy noice..

When running xmms I can only use oss output.. arts, esd, alsa does not work. When selecting alsa I get the error "snd_mixer_attach no such device".

I have appended my modules.conf below.. Please anyone what is wrong?

Hmmm... I'm also having trouble with my sound. Onboard sound on a K7VM2 motherboard from ASrock. I am using the standard driver snd-via82xx and it works apart from periodic scratching noises (with approx. 1 second period).

I tried to change the driver to the one you use (via82cxxx_audio) and got much of the behavior you describe, so I changed back to snd-via82xx. I just figured that you might have better luck with this driver to...

As of my own scratching noises it is definitely a driver problem since it works fine in window$.

good luck, kamstrup
