Strangely enough this does not sound weird. The new board I have has a
sound chip which is supposed to be compatible with a ES1371, so I
selected this module at install time. When I tried to play a CD under

I have on my "fix-later" list. Are you saying that the sound freeze is
the cause of the Gnome desktop freeze?

I am so new as to not be able to disable a sound module or re enable
another one. I am hopeful of a fix that does not require *another* full
