I got sound to work on this laptop, mostly, by using the 'sb' module. However, it seems too slow to actually work. XMMS will play a small piece of a file, skip, play a bit more, skip again, etc. Running it in realtime mode just freezes completely.
I have tried shutting down the window manager to get more resources, but that doesn't seem to help. In text mode, ogg123 exhibits the same behavior, and prints this message every time there is a skip:
DMA (output) timed out - IRQ/DRQ config error?
I have searched and found some mailing list discussions regarding this error, but have found no concrete help or info.
Any suggestions? Perhaps try ALSA somehow?
