Description

17 years ago
Combination of KT133 chipset, Vibra 128, Creative's latest Windows NT or 
Windows 2000 drivers and recent Mozilla nightly builds can foul up audio on the 
system rather severely.

We don't cause the problems (the drivers are broken), but we're suddenly 
triggering them for some odd reason (N6.1 can be used without them occurring).

Steps to reproduce:
1. Set up system with above hardware and OS.
2. Install latest creative drivers off internet.
3. Fire up Winamp and play MP3s
4. Fire up Moz and use it a bit (found it to be worse with multiple browser 
windows + mail)5. Tear hair out.

Symptoms of problem:

- Skipping of audio when clicking links and/or switching between windows.
- Speed problems with audio when doing either of the above.
- Distortion of audio when doing either of the above.

Problem appears to be intermittent to boot.
I can reproduce it often (but not 100% of the time), and it does not appear to 
involve other driver/hardware/OS combinations.

what's the CPU activity look like. Could it be that we're hitting CPU a little
harder and that's disrupting the player?
This is a problem with the via chipset and not with mozilla.
(The same bug produces sometimes corruption if you have heavy I/O activity to 
the internal IDE ports and a SB Live)
Many other people have problems with audio and the Via KT133 Chipset. (including 
me, using a SB Live)


marking invalid. (not Mozilla's fault)
