When I had Windows 7 I had to limit the available RAM to 3GB maximum or I'd get crackling sound whenever a sound tried to play. Something to do with the drivers for the
Creative X-Fi sound card.
Now that I've changed over to Ubuntu the sound has started crackling again.
Mightn't there be a way to limit the available RAM like I had to on Win7? Or I have to buy a new sound card?
