Re: sound choking with trident driver (SiS 7018)

I have just tried the driver from 2.4.20pre2. No change in behavior. The
sound still chokes every few seconds. Any ideas what might cause this
problem? It doesn't have to be the sound driver.

I will give 2.5 another go.

    the -ac tree and 2.4.20-pre1 and onwards (as well as 2.5) contain an
    updated trident.c driver. I don't see anything there that is obviously
    related to your problems, but you might wish to give the updated
    driver a try anyway.
    Thanks and please let us know how it goes,
