Crackling sound with Steam with Linux

On my Fedora box I experienced some crackling sound / distortion when playing games. All other applications seemed to work fine.  The following tip by heftig helped:

Try adding tsched=0 to the load-module module-udev-detect line in /etc/pulse/ so it reads:

load-module module-udev-detect tsched=0

After rebooting the problem was gone.

  1. Had the same problem. However, the fix for me was setting tsched=1 as it was 0 already. So – flip and try, may work. :)
