Here's the output during some skipping. It happens with or without pulse if I have any application playing sound to my xfi. Do not have the same problem if output goes to integrated intel:

I killed pulseaudio and the problem is the same as far as every few seconds, just a different sound. it seems to be the xfi driver.
Please be more specific, what apps did you test and how, and on which hardware, with which alsa-driver. There is no svn alsa-driver at all, at least, as I know of.
If it's emu20k1 chip (not emu20k2), try use_system_timer=1 module option snd-ctxfi driver. This will take the timer management back to the old one using the system timer.
I did not have this problem with XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00.tar.gz however, I am trying to get away from that driver because of other issues.

Hello, I upgraded to fedora 11 with PA 9.15 and got the svn alsa-driver and installed it for the x-fi driver. The problem is, with pulseaudio, i get a pop every few seconds like, every 3 seconds, "pop" and it does it over and over and over I seem to get no sound at all with the card if I bypass pulse What can I do?
