Subject: Sound problems during load

> Hi,
> first of all here is my hardware configuration: Asus A7V600-X (VIA
> KT600) mainboard, a Soundblaster Digital 4.1 and an onboard soundcard.
> Here is the output of cat /dev/sndstat:
> FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm)
> Installed devices:
> pcm0: <Creative CT5880-C> at io 0xb800 irq 19  (1p/1r/0v channels duplex
> default)
> pcm1: <VIA VT8237> at io 0xe000 irq 22  (5p/1r/0v channels duplex)
> I have noticed some sound-playback (through xmms) problems during I/O
> load for example extracting a big tar/gzip/bz2 archive. While extracting
> the sound slows down, starts to stutter and gets very distorted on both
> soundcards. The same thing when I try to load a kernel module. I've
> already done some testing with my bios and irq settings but no success.
> This happens on FreeBSD 5.2.1(-p8) and on todays -CURRENT. I just wanted
