I'm running 5-Stable as of Sept. 24th.

My sound card is an ESS Solo-1 (integrated
in the motherboard). I load the modules
sound.ko and snd_solo.ko.

When using realplayer or mplayer, sound
is very much distorted; also, the console
gets an endless stream of these kind of

    DMA count reg bogus: 4ff4 & 4ff4

Any idea what this means and what I can
do about this to solve the distortion of
the sound?

The dmesg output of the PC is here:
