View Full Version : Sound stops working after a while...

I can't find much on this problem. No other program is holding the sound output device. I'll be listening to Rhythmbox for a while (~20-30 min) and then sound just decides to stop working. I'll try to play another song and it'll play for about a second, maybe a little less, stop, play for another split second and then stop. As it's trying to play, the elapsed song timer in Rythmbox stays at 0:00 out of however long the song is. I tried playing something in VLC as well and still no go. However, if I switch the audio output to use OSS or Alsa instead of Pulseaudio, I get these errors:

[00000566] oss audio output error: cannot open audio device (/dev/dsp)
[00000566] jack audio output error: failed to connect to JACK server

Any suggestions? Everything works fine after a reboot but I hate to reboot so often. :D
