Description of problem: Sound stopped playing in the middle of a ogg file playing thru rhythmbox.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Random. But not uncommon - say once 2-3 hours.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Play songs thru rhythmbox.
2. Do other things, browse net, read news...
3. All of a sudden sound playing thru rhythmbox stopped. But progress bar in rhythmbox continued on.
Actual results: No more audio. Stopping/restarting rhythmbox didn't make any difference.
Expected results: Should not happen!
This happened on a Phenom-II w/4GB RAM and AMD 780G motherboard.
Hardware info collected by alsa-info.sh:
I also suffer from the strange problem.
Audio was working fine till 17th August 2009.
With the latest updates for F11, things are much better. I don't see the weird "no sound until a reboot" problem described above. There were a bunch of other issues I had noticed that also appear to be fixed, namely: volume controls not working correctly for rhythmbox, whenever the song changes, the volume would reset to almost inaudible etc.
Here is the alsa and kernel versions that work:
[kedar@agent ~]$ rpm -q kernel alsa
package alsa is not installed
[kedar@agent ~]$ rpm -qa | grep alsa
