Gnome dies...


Hello all,

I am running Ubuntu 10.04LTS with 2.6.37 kernel and I am having the following problem. I am running gnome 2.30.20 and at some point it just dies. It logs me out of my current session and I have to log in again.

This is of course very frustrating because I am loosing all my applications in all my desktops and I have to start everything again and resize them and configure them etc...

The related error messages in /var/log/syslog is the following.

Code:

Nov 28 15:46:32 ha2 pulseaudio[29262]: alsa-sink.c: We were woken up with POLLOUT set -- however a subsequent snd_pcm_avail() returned 0 or another value < min_avail.
Any ideas how to fix this? This is pretty annoying as it comes regularly but completely out of the blue...

Thanks

I am not sure how to fix this, but after some research it seems this looks like a pulseaudio bug/issue and common.

Are you saying this because of the pulseaudio error messages I am getting? Google search does provide information about bug/issues with pusleaudio but I haven't found people complaining about gnome dying..

If I don't care about the sound how can I unload pulseaudio? Is that a module that I could remove ?

It is possible that this is caused by pulseaudio. I am looking at different things right now. I never had this problem but others have and it seems that pulseaudio is connected. I really don't know how to fix this. I am sure someone else will leave a reply that is more helpful. I am not sure you can uninstall pulseaudio without uninstalling Gnome.

I found some information for you on this. It appears to be a common bug that isn't related to a single program. So I believe I was wrong when I said pulseaudio. Others have had issue like this running Chrome, Firefox, Wine, VLC, etc.

This is at Ubuntu Forums:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1759011

This is the bug the was filed:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...er/+bug/778490

This is me! I 've also noticed that I get a checking battery message when I am logged out forcefully and this is why I disabled all screensavers, turning off screen etc...

Also, it has happened to me using different applications.. Two last times it was with gedit but it seems random.

Yes, all this is related and seems to be me. One weird thing to note is that I am NOT using a laptop... and the fact that I am using 10.04, but the bug/issue is that. I'll check .xsession-errors next time to see if that's more helpful.

It is possible. I have seen reports that this same bug is in Linux Mint 10. I am using Debian Squeeze with Gnome 2 and I haven't had any issues. But I have seen Mint 10 reports, Ubuntu 10-11 reports as well.

Edit: Debian: After some research here: http://bugs.debian.org/cgibin/bugreport.cgibug=5481202009

Well, the question though is what do we do to fix it..?

It seems to be a Gnome thing then if it has been reported to happen on many different distros and over a period of years

Good question. Hopefully someone jumps in today with something useful.
