Linux Mint 8 Sound Problem

Friday 15 October 2010

I encountered a problem with the new Linux Mint 8.

The sound was cutting in some games or other applications. I saw some messages like "Dropping sound". What was odd is that the sound still worked in other applications like music players, videos...

I found a solution that works for 2 hours now, here is a link to it: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/pulseaudio/+bug/372843

I installed the package libsdl1.2debian-pulseaudio, that automatically removed libsdl1.2debian-alsa and the problem was gone.
