Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: amarok

In Amarok, under the default-version Gnome desktop, the sound output
through a Riptide ALSA sound card crashes. The device is still
functional, outputting sound through the test function of the default
sound configuration for Amarok, but the Amarok plugin disappears from
the sound preferences console, cutting off output from Amarok. Other
applications, including Rhythmbox, function normally. Amarok application
still runs and appears to be playing meanwhile. After quitting the
application (including the notification app) and restarting (the app),
the plugin reinstates itself, and functions normally until a later crash
(usually 10-20 minutes later). When monitoring during the crash, CPU
power is available, as is RAM.

The CPU is a higher-end Intel Coppermine (first run), and there is 364
MB of memory. The SWAP file is around 2 GB on an IDE hard drive
(possibly 5400 RPM).

This crash has happened since a kernel upgrade, to a version of 2.6
ending in a ".17". The app has not been uninstalled and reinstalled.

The Version of Gnome in question is 2.26, and the Ubuntu in use is
version 9.10 with KDE desktop packages installed, along with a linuxant
coexant driver for Riptide audio solutions, which seems to not be
proprietary. A generic .deb was used, reinstalled after the Kernel
upgrade. The Driver was correctly identified by all components.
