sound server crash???


I am using mandrake 10.

Whenever a system beep comes, i get a crash message saying that the sound server crashed and it received SIGABRT signal.

Please let me know what is the problem.

BTW, the sound card works fine with other applications except the system beeps.

Thanks in advance,

Does this happen in KDE ?
What is the soundsystem setting in KDE ? (e.g ALSA, OSS ?)
What kernel version doe use (uname -r) and what is your soundcard ?

I had now overcome the problem by setting the player as alsaplayer in the system notifications window in KControl.

Thank you,
