I just upgraded from FC4 to FC5 using the download iso images.
It was painless enough, but now when the log in screen is present, the
log in sound plays reeeeaaaaalllllyyyy slow. After I login the rest of
the sounds come on perfectly. When I check out the
System->Preferences->Sounds. There is a momentary blank warning dialog
and then the Sound dialog comes up. All the sounds, including the log
in sound play at the correct speed.
Its a HP Omnibook 6000, ESS Maestro-3i, the driver is snd-maestro3.
I finally figured this out and I thought I would share the solution.
I am not sure what happened with the FC5 upgrade, but the startup3.wav
file was 16 bit. The login screen (System > Administration > Login
Screen, Accessibility Tab) only handles 8 bit wav files properly. Using
glame, I converted it to 8 bit and now it sounds normal.
