Hello,

I got a sound problem. Some files (using sample rate 48000khz) sounds very strange, like metalic, low volumen, like distorted sound.

I've read about this problem using my sound card, Cmedia 6501 7.1
but it is sound strange, because, it is works ok under winxp using the same vlc client.

My big problem is that files with sample rate to 48000 khz sounds distorted.

I think there is a problem with alsa version,
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[root@darkstar alsa]# rpm -qa | grep alsa
alsa-lib-devel-1.0.12-2.fc6
alsa-tools-1.0.12-4.fc6
alsa-lib-1.0.12-2.fc6
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

i think that i should install a newest alsa package... howto do that ?, it is my
first time that i need to change something about sound (fc5 is works ok?)

Some info:

It is so strange, system-config-sound dont detect any card, but alsamix shows the card, but it is very interesting, i only can change volume level using kmix, no way using xmms o xine
options ...
