Unhappy Crackling sounds when minimizing, maximizing windows

Hello folks,


- Sound cracks when maximizing, minimizing, closing, moving windows and clicking buttons.
- Sound may also crack when playing MP3 or OGG in Amarok and Juk
- Sound also cracks when playing .avi in Kaffeine
- Sound cracks for both soundcards
- Sound quality is noticeably less compared to playing in windows xp


- 2 sound cards installed
- VIA 82C686A/B rev 50
- Ensoniq Audio PCI
- Tried adjusting all Kmix settings --> Partial success when 3D Control Switch is turned off, cracking persists when moving, minimizing or maxizing windows.
- Selected Open Sound System - same results
- Selected Advanced Linux Sound Architecture - same results
- Adjusted sound buffer to maximum allowed - same results
- Skip prevention disabled and enabled - same results
- Checked cables and sound cards - They are OK
- Used different speakers + different headset - same results
- Using Xine engine, libamarok_xine-engine, version 1, framework version 15
- Using Linux Kernel 2.16.15-26-386
- KDE version 3.5.2


- I hope somebody knows! It seems to be common and most posts seem to be unresolved

I will be sleeping now as I am drained

Good night (or morning or afternoon) fellow Linux lovers.

Live long and prosper.
