    Sound problems...


    I installed OpenSound System on slackware yesterday, and I have a couple of problems.

    1. When I play mp3's in mplayer or XMMS the speed of the music is really fast

    2. In Firefox/mozilla, when i listen to flash movies (which isn't a big deal by the way) the sound is really choppy

    I care most about the first problem. Sound works flawlessly other than that, because if i play a cd itself it runs at a normal speed.


    All help is appreciated

    Edit: I have an intel AC'97 soundcard (integrated)

    maybe you should try ALSA because OSS is now basically considered outdated.
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    I also think that ALSA has more features and works more reliably.
