Slackware 14.0 Toshiba Satellite, audio applications hang on exit.

Hi all,

I just did a near full install of Slackware 14.0 on an old Toshiba Satellite A105. All is working well, except audio. Some applications (play, aplay, all SDL apps) which play audio hang when they are finished or quit. The last sound to play continues to loop until the application is killed with `kill -9'.

I tried some modprobes like snd-hda-intel, but nothing seems to help.

Some of my modprobes gave Alsamixer a PCI playback control bar, but have not fixed the hang at the end of the programs execution. The laptop did have Ubuntu 11 on it, and sound worked for most applications, and didn't hang on quit, so it is possible for the laptops audio to work with linux.

Hmm, this may be circumstantial, but applications that use openal do not loop.
