Re: Wav- and MP3-Play stuttering on TP 390X - ESS SOLO-1
OK, I have been following this list and specifically, the sound problems that people are having with the 390X thinkpads. Here is my question: can anyone tell me the source of the problem? I used to have a 390E with the same sound card, ESS-Solo1, and it worked fine. Now, I have a 390X with the ESS-Solo1 and I have this same problem with wavs and mp3s that others have mentioned. I can turn off PCI Bus Power management in the bios, and things will work, for a while, but then it seems that sound begins to hog my memory and quits working altogether, until I reboot. What is the real issue here? Is this a problem with the bios on the Thinkpad 390X? Will a future kernel fix this? Will a future Alsa package fix this? Can it be fixed without resorting to turning off PCI Bus power management? In an ideal world, it seems that I shouldn't have to do that.
