I too have recently purchased a new Gateway with on-board Sigmatel
audio, and am having the same problems.  With the lack of PCI slots in
new machines, I was forced to buy a USB soundcard from Creative, which
has already gone bad and we are waiting for a replacement. I have gotten
the on-board to play with rat, but it crashes at random intervals, which
seem to somewhat correspond to the number of participants, and peeking
audio levels.  If anyone has any input at all, I would also love to

So what's the deal with the onboard audio for the newer Dell 
machines?  Many of these come with the Sigmatel High Definition Audio
in, but it doesn't appear to be compatible with rat....I've tried it and

rat dies frequently (sometimes every minute).   Is this an
that is being addressed in a future release of rat? I know I've seen
threads regarding sound boards, but if this is what is being shipped by 
default, I'm wondering if there is a fix somewhere....
