    What Is Yenta?

    I'm having sound quality issues, my sound gets scratchy when I use my touchpad. So I ran cat /proc/interrupts to see if I had a conflict and this is my output

    Code:
    $ cat /proc/interrupts
               CPU0       
      0:   29754963    XT-PIC-XT        timer

    I'm specifically looking for what the two yenta's are...

    I believe yenta is the driver (or subsystem?) for PCMCIA/CardBus. If you don't use it, you may be able to disable your PCMCIA/CardBus slot via BIOS.
    Don't try to make something "fast" until you are able to quantify "slow".

    Do you know if there's a way of changing the IRQ it uses, I have a feeling it's my touchpad...and it's interfering with sound playback.

    This problem only seems to occur in ubuntu...if I install Fedora my sound is fine...and Windows doesn't have any problems either.
