Linux virgin here, so I’ll ask that you forgive my ignorance in advance. Netrunner’s the first (and only, to date) linux distro I’ve installed, running on a dual boot with XP. (Chances are I’ll ask follow-up questions about stuff that seems basic or elementary to you, but I tend to pick up stuff pretty fast and I’ll avoid unnecessary spamming in the thread.)
I installed Enigma a couple of days ago and I’ve been toiling to find a solution to a sound problem: anything I play with sound produces irregular clipping, an annoying effect which seems directly related to the volume at which the application is set. Same happens in both Firefox and Chromium (where I first noticed the problem and attempted to load with an increased buffer, to no avail).
Sound card is onboard Realtek ALC662, output is HDA. I don’t have any problem of the sort when running Windows XP and am inclined to deduce the issue is not related to faulty hardware.
I browsed as much as I could for a solution and toyed around a bit unsuccessfully (I don’t really know what I’m doing), to the extent of installing PulseAudio. No good news there.
I’m sure there’s information I should be providing which I haven’t yet, but I’m all ears (well, eyes) to any suggestions, information and/or instructions.
