|So we all know that the original websurfer|
was made by gct allwell. GCT Allwell still make boxes, and these boxes take Linux
My problem is very poor sound quality when
using "esd", the Linux Enhanced Sound Daemon.
I get tinny sound, as if the speaker is torn,
and a high pitched whine, as if from a car
alternator. Not, it's none of these, because
if I use the same audio equipment on a different computer it sounds fine.
The GCT 3036 uses the same sound chip as
the original websurfer: the cyrix/national
CS5530, coupled to the LM4548 CODEC
I'm using the SB16 driver. If I use it by
itself, without esd, it sounds much better,
but still not as good as a different computer.
Finally, I have two different GCT Allwell
boxes and they both exhibit the same problem.
