Linux sound


The problem is that my sound keeps breaking after about 4 minutes of listening to music. This also happens when I turn up the volume high then it breaks.

I can get the sound to play again after running this command several times :~$sudo /etc/init.d/alsasound restart

"several times" then the sound plays again and breaks again after about 4 minutes or if I turn the volume up.

This is a fresh install of SLED 11. This happens with all the updates and no updates from fresh install.

Linux sound is so complicated that pretty soon I will loose all my hair.

This had been going on for 2 months and can't find the problem.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

It might help if you told us about the audio card and chip your system uses.
