View Full Version : [ubuntu] Java and Pulse Audio

I am on the new installation of Intrepid 64bit.

When I play a Java applet game on Firefox, the sound initially work, but then it just stops after a short while. I am not playing any other software playing sound or music at this time.

After this happens, if I try to play music through other software like Rhythmbox, I get the following message on log

pulseaudio[6618]: module-alsa-sink.c: Error opening PCM device front:0: Device or resource busy
pulseaudio[7590]: alsa-util.c: Error opening PCM device hw:0: Device or resource busy

I looked around, and it seems something similar has happened with Hardy, but I haven't found any articles on this regarding Intrepid.

One of the suggestion I read was to kill the pulseaudio. I tried that. While log no longer displayed errors, no sound came out of my speaker either.

Does anyone have any idea about getting around this?

Thanks.

openjdk-6 (6b12~pre2-0ubuntu2) intrepid; urgency=low

* Fix pulse-java build failure on amd64.


Pulse support was recently added to openjdk6/icedtea6 and some 64-bit issue was fixed shortly before Intrepid was released.

Not sure though, if that's really related to your issue.

Is the fix in the release version of Intrepid?
