sound quits randomly in portal on wine
I recently downloaded portal through steam (which I plan on installing the stand-alone later since steam only works with the net. *cough* *cough* spyware *cough*)
Now when I play portal (both 1 & 2) after a while the sound will just randomly quit. I've tried the -snd_openal option suggested here: WineHQ Forums View topic - Portal sound doesn't work and it only worked temporarily.
It seems to work after I reboot the machine, and everything under wine seems to be able to make sound except for portal.
I'm using wine version 1.3 with an Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97 Audio Controller, on Ubuntu version 10.04, and steam version 12.
