After trying a lot of things today (I still have a lot of problem 
finding the essence of, hum, 'organisation' between oss, alsa, arts and 
KDE) I finally re-installed amarok (I had it kicked out since I found it 
too bulky to use) and this on DOES play without any glitches.

So I guess the driver/HW issues are fine and it's just now up to me to 
find which API to use. I'm currently going through SDL, enabling the 
various modules in it but it still jerks at times. Of course this is one 
more layer between me and that I need to take down. What should I try to 
write a direct driver for ? ALSA ?
