Totem will no longer play any sounds, nor will VLC until I restart my system. Does some body have a command line that could fix my sound issue(s) without rebooting?
    I don't know if it is the same case but what I do when this happens, I just type in terminal:

    Code:
    killall pulseaudio
    Somehow, pulseaudio interferes with my Rhythmbox, Totem, and all the other multimedia stuff I run that needs sounds.

    Again, I'm not sure if we have the same case.

    Pretty nice guide - I'll probably have to use it every once in a while.

    Thanks nice posts.
    How do I avoid rebooting because of changes to the config files of kernel modules ?
    Ex. after changind /etc/modprobe/alsa* I have to restart .
    trying to reload snd_hda_intel

    modprobe -r snd_hda_intel
    FATAL: Module snd_hda_intel is in use.

    ??

    lol i'd never reboot this machine if it wasn't for kernel updates. I've been wanting to see if i could leave it running for over a month total time but those horrible developers keep making my system better.
