Default Audio problems with some games on fc8

I'm having sound problems with both doom3 and quake4 in fc8. I've read all
the FAQ's and tried everything.

My best result is stuttering but sometimes OK sound.

When I use alsa (+set s_driver alsa +set s_alsa_pcm plughw:0 +set
s_numberOfSpeakers 2) I get:

------ Alsa Sound Initialization -----
dlsym("snd_asoundlib_version") failed: ./quake4.x86: undefined symbol:
dlsym snd_pcm_avail_update failed: ./quake4.x86: undefined symbol:
snd_pcm_avail_update, version ALSA_0.9

----------- Alsa Shutdown ------------

And no sound.

When I use OSS (+set s_driver oss +set s_numberOfSpeakers 2):

------ OSS Sound Initialization ------
opened sound device '/dev/dsp'
ioctl SNDCTL_SYSINFO failed: Invalid argument
this ioctl is only available in OSS/Linux implementation. If you run
OSS/Free, don't bother.

/dev/dsp - bit rate: 16, channels: 2, frequency: 44100
allocated a mix buffer of 16384 bytes

I also tried:

[ra@morticia ~]$ cat /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss
quake2 0 0 direct
quake3.x86 0 0 direct
quake4.x86 0 0 direct

With no change.

I've tried almost everything the mighty, all knowing Oracle Google has told
me to do (except start compiling kernels and soundsystems) with no luck.

I'm using KDE with the KDE soundsystem disabled. No artsd or esd is running.
As far as sound is concerned, my machine is as it was when I installed it.
Otherwise, I have no problems with sound. Older games (Quake2, Quake3,
Wolf, Cedega) and everything else performes wonderfully.

The soundhardware I have is pretty standard:

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition
Audio Controller (rev 01)

Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Unknown device 3010
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 20
Memory at e0500000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: HDA Intel
Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel

Has anyone else had audio problems with Quake4 or Doom3 on fc8 (I didnt have
these problems with fc7) and managed to fix them ?

Thanks in advance.
