I am running fedora core 2 and I have the above mentioned sound card.

The problem is that I keep getting a whooshing sound the kind you get on your tv set when its not picking up channels. This happens when there is no audioplayer program running.

If I run sound detection this is the info I get:

Vendor: Ensoniq
Model: 5880 AudioPCI
Module: sn-ens1371

I would be greatfull for any assitants given.
