Description Brian Cottingham 2007-11-11 12:44:11 UTC
Description of problem: 
This morning, when I tried to play some music, the tracks zipped by with no 
real playtime in Amarok. The same thing happened with the Soundcard Detection 
program. /var/log/messages has this:

====

input: too many inputs per sink.

I'm playing FLAC files, so it's not a binary codec issue, and a reboot didn't 
fix the problem. 

How reproducible: Unknown, persistent thus far.

When I closed Firefox, my sound came back; it looks like something in Firefox 
was holding the sound system hostage. Flash, perhaps?

I've had the sound problem on the live CD too, but without flash/firefox 
running, so that can't be the only cause. 

Comment 2 Lennart Poettering 2007-11-11 16:19:43 UTC
Flash is horrendously broken. It keeps opening devices until it hits EBUSY,
which will take a while on PA.

To make Flash work with PA, install libflashsupport.
