Unhappy sound driver woes

i am not sure if this shud go in hardware or software but i think its more applicable here.

i recently installed gentoo(about 2 weeks ago) and am bashing my head off the wall with regard to sound drivers.

I have a creative audigy and i first installed the alsa drivers. Had problems with sound stuttering and continously looping in xmms, xine etc so i tried to get rid of alsa but failed. I cant get rid of alsa-lib. Anytime I gdm and nearly every other gnome complain about missing, i tried recompiling half my system but no good.

So i now have all of the alsa driver uninstalled except the alsa library. I then heard about the tenpin driver for the audigy, and decided to give it a go. Its based on the emu10k1 driver so i thought itd be good.

I installed that and xmms works perfect but i have the same problems with sound locking in a continuos loop or the program crashing with xine and mplayer. aaargh!

before gentoo i used redhat 8 and had no problems with sound. I really love gentoo and dont want this problem to make me switch back.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

snd-emu10k1() or audigy() would also work. there are a few things u can do without the alsa - just don't make it a runlevel task (but since u already got rid of it i guess that's unnecessary)

u can always insmod a new module
