Hey guys,

I'm having an issue with the sound card on my laptop. It was working
just fine some weeks ago and seems it's not anymore. (it's been like
that for like 1 month).

The sound just loops forever. It plays half a second of the sound and
then loops it.

Here's what dmesg says:

auvia0 at pci0 dev 17 function 5: VIA Technologies VT82C686A AC'97 Audio
(rev 0x40)
auvia0: interrupting at irq 10
auvia0: ac97: VIA Technologies VT1612A codec; headphone, 18 bit DAC, 18
bit ADC, KS Waves 3D
auvia0: ac97: ext id 201<AMAP,VRA>
audio0 at auvia0: full duplex, mmap, independent

Should I go about downloading old sources of the driver and try to
compile them, listen if it works and if so see what changed ?
