Default Sound problems with nvsound


I'm running Mandrake 10.2 (Limited Edition 2005) 32bit version. My system is a Asus A8N-SLI motherboard with a AMD64-3200+ CPU and GeForce 6600 (256Mb) GPU. Things generally works fine, except sound.

I installed the NFORCE drivers from NVidia and did was was written in the guide (use nvsound instead of snd-intel8x0 and using the install and remove setup in modprobe.conf, that was descriped in the guide).

But if I try to play doom3 demo I get no sound what so ever. I just get a lot of Alsa errors in the terminal. Also Skype won't work. Last night I suddenly got a lof of OSS errors (Failed to open audio device (/dev/dsp): Cannot allocate memory).

I decided to go back to the snd-intel8x0 drivers instead and altered my modprobe.conf again. Now I can hear sound in Doom3, but it's really really really bad! It's fast and mushy with a lot of mixed sounds. People in Skype sounds like chipmunks and I can't use my mic at all.

Any idea of what's going on here and how I can correct my problems?
