Sound Problems After Running K3b


Hi, I've Googled this and searched the forums and can't find anyone else having the same problem.

Every time I run K3b, after the little victory trumpet plays at the end, I get a window that pops up and tells me a sound device doesn't work and asking if I want to permanently delete it. First my Intel-HDA card will stop working, then my SoundBlaster Audigy card. The soundcards will be back when I reboot but I don't understand why this is happening.

Thanks in advance for your help. Here is my hardware from lspci and I'm running a custom built machine, in ArtistX (Ubuntu 10.04) on the 2.6.35-30-generic kernel.

Have you tried any of these? I recall in the past I had some issues similar to this <10.04 has been out a little bit>:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/ppa
sudo apt-get update

<there may be some other things to run but I doubt they're of consequence here with your issue>

sudo apt-get install linux-alsa-driver-modules-$(uname -r)

Most likely this is a box you don't mind rebooting (lazy way). So go ahead and reboot.

Have a look at your alsamixer levels (the one that shows all of them).

select the correct soundcard.
Go to "System / Preferences / Sound" and make sure you have the correct sound card and make sure it's default and adjust the profile.
On the output tab make sure you choose the correct device.

I can't choose a default or preferred soundcard that way. It doesn't do anything. I set the index number of my two soundcards as 0 and 1 by editing /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf in terminal. I have installed the linux-alsa-driver-modules but alsamixer won't run. If I try to install or re-install alsamixer, I get a message that says alsamixer is already the latest version but it still won't run.

I'll try adding the repository and let you know how that goes. Thanks for your help!
