Dude, that’s been bothering me for soo long.
Thank you so much
It Works!!!! Thanks a million!!!
I had no idea what was causing that annoying crackling. This fixed it. Thank you for this.
What if I just comment it out, instead of deleting it? Wouldn’t work?
It will work
Thanks a lot!
Yay! That was frustrating and I couldn’t find help on my list visit to ubuntuforums.
Also used commenting instead of deleting.
That doesn’t work for me. When I comment the lines out nothing changes and when I delete the lines the crackling noise disappear but the rest of the sound too.
Het man thank you for adding the credits, i didnt know that it would help THAT many people. I really do appreciate it. this is linuxgeek77 from the ubuntu forums post.
You can either comment it out with # or delete it. it is the same concept. I dont like to waste bytes:P so i deleted it.
@ T4b. if you go to the site where the credits is. ( from the author of this post) scroll down and you will see a post by me (linuxgeek77) on how to update your alsa drivers. if you follow that it will fix your problem. the post is located here:
Is this bug reported to Launchpad?
THAAAAAAAAAAAAANKS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH
my mind was confusing
If you don’t want to reboot you may also restart the alsa driver like this
sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils stop
sudo alsa force-reload
sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils start
Klart, no reboot required =)
Thanks, it worked for me. The annoying sound is gone now. Good job.
Oh my shomai! How can we spread the word? This is working!
I suggest you comment out the lines rather than deleting. If the fix doesn’t work and the user wan’t to roll back then there is no rollback path if the text is deleted.
you are the best ! my problem solved !
Tanx so much
