View Full Version : [ubuntu] Sound loops and/or freezes system

April 24th, 2008, 08:23 PM
I've been using the Heron (8.04) RC for the last 2 or 3 weeks (used 'update-manager --devel-release' to upgrade) without a hitch. As of the past 1-3 days, I haven't been able to play any audio. When I attempt to play an mp3 (in various players) it will play about 1 second of audio then loop it over and over, usually ending in me loosing control of my mouse and keyboard.

I decided to check out the PulseAudio wiki page on ubuntu.com and tried all it said and installed the programs. Nothing. I then went and removed all pulseaudio packages and set all my settings to ALSA. Nothing, still freezes on playing anything.

Any ideas?

Well, this isn't an issue anymore. I couldn't wait to try and figure it out, and just grabbed the official ISO and reinstalled.
