Re: Sound eventually fails in Wine
I'm suffering the same issue although I have completely uninstalled PulseAudio. Sound drops a few minutes in wine, mostly after a new area is loaded in a game etc. Updating ALSA didn't help as well. I have a workaround to get sound running.
Open up wine configuration, go to audio tab and change hardware acceleration to "Emulation". This does it for me, however, the sound may run faster at times until it "catches up" with video.
I hope it helps you, too.
