    Subjectsound driver feature/bug ?
    Hi, Hannu

    I made a few tests with the sound driver
    (my card is SB16 ASP). Some of them were
    crazy enough to produce strange results.

    1. Writing 1 byte to /dev/dsp forced the driver
    to play 4K bytes. Of cource the rest 4095
    bytes were noise. I realised that smallest
    piece of samples/bytes the driver can play is

    2. Writing 4097 bytes made the driver play
    two buffers. Again the rest 4095 bytes
    from the second buffer were garbage.

    I realise that is very hard to have all cases
    in mind, but using SB under Linux for something
    different than playback/record will produce
    strange(incorrect) results.
