Sound bombing out.How to restart?

Postby georgetoon on Sun Oct 12, 2008 9:43 am

Every once in a while the sound will stop. I try to restart in the System Settings area but the sound does not re-engage. Is there another way to restartt the sound? A command or wizard of some sort?

Right now, I have to restart the system to get the sound back up and running..

If you are using alsa
Code: Select all
sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils restart

if you are using pulseaudio
Code: Select all
sudo /etc/init.d/pulseaudio restart

Just about anything in init.d can be restarted this way (but it does not work for networking now)
