Whenever I enable sound redirection with rdesktop, I
experience very high CPU usage when sounds are playing
(this is the top line from top):
PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM
25526 miker 15 0 5640 2256 1612 R 71 0.2
The mstsc.exe client when running through wine does not
exhibit this problem, but is pretty slow.
What method does rdesktop use to play sound on linux,
and is there any way to change it? What could I try to
debug this problem?
General system config: Gentoo 2006.1 , rdesktop 1.4.1 ,
snd_emu10k1 driver in Linux 2.6.15
