F11: I keep losing audio

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi all,

Since upgrading from F10 to F11 several weeks ago, I have been having
recurring problems with audio, and I am having difficulty figuring out what
is going on.

To start with, when Gnome starts up, sounds works fine in all apps.

Then it dies. Not while I am using the system; during inactivity, so I don't
get any leads. The volume sliderbar, ie, Sound Preferences applet still
"sees" the audio device (in earlier times, when sound died, the Sound
Preferences no long recognized the audio device).

I try to restarting nasd, no luck.

I logout, login again, Gnome restarts, sounds works now.

Wild guess: something to do with Flash. From dmesg:

$ dmesg | grep npviewer
npviewer.bin[12200]: segfault at b6fa7030 ip 007c6ccd sp bf9cb688 error 4 in
npviewer.bin[20778] general protection ip:130a31c sp:bff88450 error:0 in
npviewer.bin[11448] general protection ip:116b31c sp:bfc9bdf0 error:0 in

Is npviewer "taking down" the audio when it segfaults?

I also see this line in dmesg, but it scarcely seems important:

hda-intel: IRQ timing workaround is activated for card #0. Suggest a bigger

Can someone give me some ideas on how to figure out what is happening here?
