like changing snddevice to plug:hw or default, etc. (of course I haven't
Perhaps someone can reproduce that.
I'm using gentoo's kernel 2.6.11 and ALSA 1.0.9b as modules. (emu10k1
When "Maniac-" (coder of the AprQ2 project: http://apprime.0wns.org/q2/)
tried to import the ALSA code, we had the same problems with his client
then. We even tried the quake2forge's ALSA implementation, but had the
exact same soundstuttering. So I told Maniac to use the ALSA code of
EzQuake since I had no problems with it. And there, it worked just fine.
Maniac hasn't released the fixed ALSA stuff yet. But...
Please take a look at EzQuake's ALSA implementation.
I wrote a howto to which I point many people often.. and I got to know
of these problems the day someone tried to install icculus' q2 - and he
wanted to play with ALSA.
