FC5 audio problem

I recently installed FC5 on my system, and im having problems with audio. The problems is that FC5 seems to detect the sound card, however when fedora plays any kind of sound it echos the sound and the it crashes. Itīs like when you have an audio cd and it is scratched and the songs echo and you can really listen to the song

That's what my problems is?

Does anybody have any idea how to solve this problem?

Does the problem happen with all sound sources? (Stream, CD, DVD, "event sounds," WAV files, OGG files, MIDI files?)

When you run system-config-soundcard is the card correctly identified, and does the test sound play O.K.?

Which sound system are you using? (ALSA, OSS, some other one?) Have you tried a different one?

Which windowing system (if any) are you using? (GNOME, KDE, some other one?) Have you tried a different one? Have you run the windowing system's app to configure your sound system for the windowing system?

What, specifically, have you tried already to solve your problem?

Not that my problem is similar but im having audio troubles aswell...

system-config-soundcard identifies the right card, but i do not hear a sound. Command line issues amixer: Mixer attach default error: no such device.

i tried modprobe snd-powermac with no affect

using alsa with the GNOME windowing system

never heard sound under FC5
under osx it has always worked fine...
