audio failure 5% of the time!? [via686]


I’m experiencing an odd problem- audio comes up silent about 1 out of every 20 boots. Driver is running (ps -ef|grep via686 shows four or five instances of io-audio -d via686).

I’ve been stymied in troubleshooting so far by some odd problems:

Adding slogger with no opts just before loading the drive makes audio choppy (i.e. bits play but with silent gaps inserted).

Adding slogger with -s 64K seems to work better but is fairly useless since loginfo shows no messages.

Any ideas?
