I spoke too soon. I can't get ZDoom to work, I can't even get the program to load without a crash. I get the exact same symptoms as you, a brief static, then crash. I have IDH6 HDA internal sound on that netbook. I did all that you did, strip, replaced stub, with no result.

Same for me with IDH6 sound. It plays fine without any sound output, seems to detect my soundcard, but no audible output. I can use it to write a .WAV file and play that just fine in QV or MPLAYER, or MPXPLAY, though.

Too bad we couldn't contact him. Maybe he could update his version of ZDoom with the QV sound drivers, and it would work on our systems.

I also have that quirk, QV doesn't FF or rewind for me on MPEG4 files or mpeg2 files, but does on audio files. Strange indeed. I'll have to write the author again and inquire if this is a bug or a feature. :-) :-)
