Name the next release Dodgy Duck!
Have any of you tried running UT on Feisty? Any improvement there?
Personally not yet as I've only been able to test off the LiveCD so far. I will as soon I've upgraded.
Found some interesting stuff here:
I won't be able to test this right now as my new laptop hasn't arrived yet, but it will have the dreaded Intel HDA audio. If anyone tries those suggestions please post your results.
I also stumbled upon the same fix in the Ubuntu wiki:
In some SDL programs, such as Wesnoth, the audio will contain many scratchy artifacts. This can be fixed by adding the following line to /etc/modprobe.d/options:
options snd_hda_intel position_fix=1
Found a bug report on Launchpad that may be related to this:
Similar SDL problems reported on the Neverwinter Nights forum:

I just got my new laptop with the happy funtimes hda_intel sound. As expected, UT sound is still broken in the exact same way. I tried all the fixes I posted earlier with no luck. The real pisser is that I keep finding this very thread at the top of my endless Google searches.
Now upgraded to Feisty and the problem is still there.
I tried out the 'position_fix=1' thing above. I think it maybe improved the sound a little but still some audible jittering and popping.
here's the fix for the same issue but running quake2:
I'm not sure if this will work for UT games,, but you may want to modify you're ~/.loki/ut/System/UnrealTournament.ini file changing the following like to the next:
I do this because the AL device positions the sound wrong. hope this helps!
Same issue here with the same audio card. I've even tried git sources kernel and compiled the alsa driver within the kernel. Anyone got it working yet??
