Sound quits after about 10 mins *RESOLVED*

My sound quits after about 10-15 mins of use. Here is what I have on the systerm.

Asus A7N8X Delux version 1 using onboard audio
The soundcard detection says:
Vendor: nVidia Corporation
Model: nForce2 AC97 Audio Controler (MCP)
Module: i810_audio

I can't hear the test sound when I play it from the Auido Devices. The error says "Automatic detection of the sound card did not work. Audio will not be available on the system."

If I reboot, it works fine.

I'm still running Fedora core 1, 2.4 kernel

After configuring Rhythmbox to play MP3s and letting it sit for a bit on pause, this error comes up:

osscommon: unable to open /dev/dsp (in use?)

Any ideas?

After a little searching, I found that something WAS using the dsp file. GAIM somehow locked it up. Here are the steps I took to resolve it.

1. Find out what's using it. As root:
lsof | grep dsp
displayed that GAIM was using it.

2. Killing the process allowed me to play my music and release my soundcard!
