Switch back to FC 8.

If you must have Debian

1. Download the latest kernel sources from kernel.org, and build the kernel from source.

OR

2. Download the latest version of ALSA and build it from source.

OR

3. Both.

thanks for your reply.
Well, to be honest with you I much prefer Debian I'll do as you suggested and we'll see.

It works fine with kernel 2.6.23.9 and the latest alsa compiled with intel-snd.
The problem is that it works perfectly with xmms and mplayer, but with audacious and gxine you can hear the sound for 1-2 seconds and then it gets quiet.
Obviously I could use mplayer and xmms, but out of curiosity, why is that?

thank you

Look at the output of dmesg and look at "/var/log/messages" and "/var/log/debug" to see if there is any information about the problem. Also check if there are any ALSA specific logs in "/var/log".
