cranky sound

I have just installed Fedora 9 on my compaq presario cq50 laptop (32bit version for AMD processor). I have followed the steps for setting up alsa sound from: http://www.linlap.com/wiki/Configuri...A+for+Fedora+9

I notice that sound is very cranky and after playing a song for a while my complete system freezes in the middle of a song (either in Amarok or vlc). I do not have any ctrl+alt+back space possibility, I have to use the power button to restart.

I have removed the pulseaudio packages as I thought first that these were responsible for the crashes but without them I also have the freezes.

Is there anything I can try next?

You could try the following
Code:
su -
yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing
The updates have been released, but it may take up to 24 hours until your local mirror syncs with main servers.

That's great news. I can't wait to try it out, but first I have to work all day. I'll let you know how it worked out.

Many thanks!

This morning I ran yum update and after that I performed the stresstest. I opened Amarok and VLC and let them run for half an hour. And indeed there was no system freeze. So anyone who is experiencing freezes I can recommend to run the latest updates. Everything smooth here!
