Bug #285

Updated by robgar almost 8 years ago

Playing sound using pcm(4)/snd(4) gives bad quality: hiss and hops, like sound isn't playing for very short time periods. 


 This is experienced: 
  - not having SMP in kernel config (eg GENERIC) 
  - from dfly-1.5 26th December '05 (24th is ok using kernels from chlamydia); 
 including HEAD. 


 dfly-1.4 is ok, including 1.4.4. 


 Using audio/mpg123 for MP3, 'cp test.raw /dev/dspW' or pcmplay for decoded sound. 
 Buffering audio data with mpg123 -b doesn't sound like making any difference. 


 CPU load doesn't sound like making any difference. 
 Problem experienced on several systems, using snd_via8233 and snd_ich. 


 No X11 used.
