Hi,

I *finally* got alsa running well enough for me to be able to change the volume (it was originally going to be the first problem I would post but I accidentally stumbled upon the solution on my own over the weekend--some random kernel combination I tried out), but now that I can hear the dvd I'm playing (via xine), the sound is distorted, as if slowed down or something. Listening to Neo speak with a very gutteral tone is weird :P I thought it might be bass or treble or something, but nothing changes it. Booting into 10.3.3 and the dvd plays fine. I'm totally stumped.

Anyone know what the heck could be the problem?

Machine stats:
iBook G4
Kernel 2.6.3-benh2
256 MB ram

Thanks

Perhaps you need to turn PCM down in alsamixer?

I think I've tried that, but when I get home today I'll try lowering it again to see if it makes a difference. Anything else that could cause this?
