Playback crackling (soundcard problem?)
I just installed Fedora Core 4 over Redhat 9. In Redhat the playback was clear and sounded good. not with Fedora. The upside is now I can record from "line in" which I couldn't do in RH (for some reason).
I've checked unused inputs that may be causing this problem but even with all inputs muted and even all unnecessary outputs muted I still get a crackling noise when i playback mp3 or wav (probably ogg too).
does anyone have any ideas?
I think I know the solution.
I'm not sure if you ever got this fixed but I had exactly the same situation as you (upgrading RH9 to FC4) and I couldn't sort it out until today.
I read this post;
and it now works fine for me. Try it out and hopefully you will soon be listening to music again too.
Bye for now,
