violates the KISS principle! Therefore i decided to go "back to the roots" and
just use ALSA wherever possible :-) However, for X-Plane, I still had stuttering
until I selected "alsa native" as sound device in /etc/openalrc (instead of
the default "sdl") - seems like on Fedora 10, sdl uses OSS by default which
uses ALSA-based OSS-emualtion in turn, potentially causing stuttering.
Does somebody know a very good overview (including diagrams, etc.) that
shows how all that sound stuff interacts and how to configure it? So far, I only
found documents that handle one aspect, but not the whole picture.
