Sound bombing out.How to restart?

Postby georgetoon » 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)

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
