Hi!

I have a problem, sometimes when I am washing flash clips on youtube in Firefox 2 the sound just wont work anymore, and in the console I get this error:

"ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:864:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave"

The only way I know how to solve it is restart Kubuntu (7.10).

Thank you in advance

have you tried resetting ALSA with this command:

sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils reset

Hi,

I have tried it before but it didn't help, I don't have sound in the whole system.

Have you tried setting everything in System/Preferences/Sound to alsa instead of automatic?
