Please bear with me this is my first post, and I have searched for days for the answer.
When playing MP3s through Xmms, the sound is good; but, there is a slight static sound. Also when I play CD audio, the sound is pretty bad altogether. I don't get any errors, it just doesn't sound worth listening to.
Under System Stats, DSL reports:
SOUND_FULLNAME="Creative Labs | ES1371"
In Xmms under Preferences>Audio I/O Plugins>Output Plugin>
OSS driver 1.2.8 [libOSS.so]
As far as I can tell, the IRQ for the sound card is 11. The BIOS won't let me choose what IRQ to set it for. There are only two settings for each IRQ and they are something like PnP or ISA/VESA (something like that, I have to reboot the computer to get the exact wording).
I have a question about using the ALSA output driver, but I am going to wait until I get a response to this question first.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I am going blind reading posts that have almost no relevance to my problem.
