    Chakara sound problem

    So i recently put chakara on my laptop for my computer science classes in college everything runs fine but one thing. Any sound that i play on it stutters repeatedly for hours and actually never stops untill another sound is played and then repeats that one. My professor and i tried to fix it by installing a long list of updates through root with pacman -Syu , if that makes a differance. An hour later and 1g of drivers later my computer still stutters. So if anyone please has any suggestion or the same problem please post and help me in any way thank you.

    The sound issue is most likely something KDE specific (the default desktop environment in Chakra) and not a driver issue.

    If you go to System Settings there should be an option for sound or the like. You may need to change the default sound card it's trying to use.

    Also could be an issue with Phonon. You can switch to a different phonon backend and see if that helps. I believe it defaults to gstreamer. Try vlc.
    su -c 'pacman -S phonon-vlc'
    There's also a phonon-xine backend.

    Failing that, there may be a driver option that could help as well. Post the output of
    head -n 1 /proc/asound/card*/codec*
