Re: more on 14.0-1 viavoice and rh7.1 on dell latitude




My guess would be your problem is due to low interrupt priority - its
been reported on this list that you can greatly improve the
reliability and responsiveness of viavoice if you increase the
priority of your sound card interupt. There is a tool called irqtune
which can do this (at least it can for 2.2.x kernels, don't know if it
works with 2.4.x kernels or not). I think the fact viavoice works
better at a rate of 75 than 95 supports this hypothesis.
