kernel oops playing sound -- sound now wedged - Debian

    Default kernel oops playing sound -- sound now wedged

    I used gmplayer (from Christian Marillat's excellent archive) to play a
    video file this morning. Gmplayer froze, and I had to kill it. Now *no*
    sound will play, and this is in /var/log/messages:

    And now, I can't unload the sound drivers. They all report being busy. I'm
    going to have to reboot to get sound back, I guess.

    I've never experienced a kernel oops on this system. It's disturbing.

    Should I report this as a bug in kernel-image-2.4.20-3-k7? There are
    currently no visible bugs against any of the 2.4.20 kernels that I could
    find. Or is it a bug in the sound modules?

    And: I sent essentially this message about 6 hours ago, and it was never
    posted. That's three messages sent to debian-user that just disappeared
    into the ether, neither posted nor bounced. That should never happen. I
    know lists.debian.org accepted them, because I'm running my own SMTP server.
    Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Sounds like time for "lsof" to see what is keeping the sound system
    busy. Beyond that, while Christian Marillat does an excellent job both
    on the packages of the archive he maintains and the many packages he
    maintains in the Debian archives, mplayer (and its variants) is
    something that I find requires a local build from source to *really*
    work reliably on any computer I've worked with it. Download the source
    from [url]http://www.mplayerhq.hu[/url], untar it and from its lead directory, run:

    ../configure --help | lpr

    after which you can run debian/rules with the appropriate flags for the
    type of system you have. It will work much better than what anyone else
    can package because mplayer is still very machine specific.

    Of course I rebooted days ago. I did use "lsof" but aside from reporting
    that various sound modules used each other, it wasn't helpful.

    As for compiling mplayer myself:

    1. It shouldn't be relevant to a kernel oops, and

    2. I've done so, and seen no performance difference between my package and
    Christian's "k7" series.
