  • Hello, everybody.
    I have a problem I believe is a problem with ALSA (my configuration that is).
    When I switch from X to a text console (by pressing CTRL+ALT+F1), my audio skips for a very brief period of time (about 100ms, I believe). It happens with many different asound.conf configurations and even with different Linux distributions (I have tryed in the past). I currently use dmix plugin with buffer_size on slave set to 32768 (on my Creative Extigy (USB) sound card).
    It happens with other sound cards as well.

    Any ideas?
    Thank you in advance.
