View Full Version : [ubuntu] sound problem

July 23rd, 2008, 02:11 AM
My sound is working great. I have sound in my video games and my desktop sounds work. However, when I try to play a music file, I get a box that pops up and says "(noatun or juk or soundserver)The KDE crash handler". When I click it, it keeps coming back. It says the name of the program in the first box , then soundserver in the second box. Did I miss an update or something?

I am using a Sound Blaster Live! card and want to get it working on Ubuntu 8.04.1....

I have installed and when I type lspci -l, I can see it.
Modprobe shows the emu10k1 module. When I type startx, it loads up the GUI and the first thing on the screen is KDE crash message for soundserver. I don't know what else to try.

Here is my /etc/modules file:

# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.


# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-emu10k1
# module options should go here

# OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0

# card #1
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
