my system: laptop, gentoo linux, kernel 2.4.23-ck1, maudio quattro, ati
since it's laptop, i can't reassign irqs ... but since the soundcard is
a usb device and the video card an agp device, i don't think that it has
something to do with interrupts (although i'm not sure...)

anyway, i'll try yves patch first...

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn,
burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across
the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and
everybody goes "Awww!"
