- xmms will be playing fine for an hour and then stop with the generic error about the soundcard being unavailable
- I'll pause mplayer and unpause it only to have it crash due to the
soundcard being unavailable
- snes9x will stop playing the sound after a short amount of playtime
Most of the time, I see an error along the lines of an "illegal error". With mplayer and xmms, usually a couple of tries and the sound will work again. "fstat | grep dsp" will never output anything when the sound isn't working so I don't think anything else is blocking the soundcard plus I have 4 virtual channels set up so that shouldn't be possible anyway.
The problem is hard to cause or predict so I can't really provide more specific situations, but I'm hoping that this has happened to someone else before.
P.S. Has anyone seen anything about possible support of >2 channels on this board or support of the nvidia nic?
