SDL was definitely using ESounD when the audio sounded garbled.

meep-eep and Novus:  Your suggestions work.  Thanks!

Novus:  Sorry to not read your first message more carefully.  I have a bad tendancy of not noticing some key words while looking directly at them.  It's strange.

Dear meep-eep,

I thought it may have been openAL too, but openAL doesn't seem to be on my system.  Thanks for your suggestions.

Dear Novus,

Setting the SDL_AUDIODRIVER variable solved the issue.  I think SDL was forwarding the audio to ESounD (but I'm not sure -- is there some way to check?).  Setting the variable to ALSA made everything sound normal again, but disables the audio-stream mixing ESounD provides.  I'm going to check whether my ESounD is setup correctly.

Thanks for your help, folks!

Question:  Do you know a permanent way to change the SDL audio driver?

UQM 0.4 with 3do music and voice sounded great on my system while it operated with Fedora 3.  I freshly installed Fedora 4 and now everything sounds fine except UQM.  UQM sounds crackly and muffled.  The music files (extracted from the .uqm packages) sound as great as before on other applications.  How does UQM play sound?  Understanding the mechanism would give me some clues to fix this.  Can someone suggest how to fix this?  Thanks!
