When playing any sort of audio, be it via mpg123 or wav files, sounds in
a game included, it plays much slower than it should. The sound seems to
run at about half speed, with tons of static as well.
play any sound file by any means.
i accidentally found out that running something that takes cpu time
actually reduces the issue while something is being played. A good
example is running "ls -R /" or md5 on a large file. during the time at
which the said process is running, the sound actually runs almost 100%
normal, with minor breakup. Not sure that I would call this a `Fix' but
it is something.
