enabling sound events using alsa hangs system
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:07 EST
Description of problem:
Enabling the sound server and sound events on my Thinkpad T60 causes my system
to hang. If I have the login/logout sounds enabled, I can't even login to my
system--login just hangs. If I disable the sound events, I have no problems. I
am using the Alsa system. If I switch to the oss system, my system becomes a
bit more stable but still hangs.
In either case, I am able to hear sounds when I enable the sound server--this
just causes my system to hang.
I disabled SE Linux, but the problem persists.
Once my system hangs, my account becomes totally unusable, and I have to delete
my .gconf directory in order to login again.
