12.10 and WINE: Crackling and Popping in Sound

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, Everyone... I looked around quite a bit before posting this issue in Wine regarding static, popping, and crackling in Windows games sound, which, prior to my very recent installation of 12.10 (upgraded from 12.04), ran beautifully all the way around. The WINE configuration window no longer allows a switch to another sound option (alsa); also, winetricks (at least when I select sound=option) doesn't even seem to make a change (so I don't know whether that works). I am running a core duo w/ 4 GB RAM. Thanks so much to anyone reading and replying... C. (Hardware)
