I have a big issue: I just installed Ubuntu 8.04 and I'm trying to get it to work. Whenever I load a media player like Xine, Mplayer, etc., the system freezes. Looking in my /var/log/user.log file, I see the below error. Also, if I try to play any sounds at all, the sound goes into an endless loop. For example, the start up sound hits the first beat and goes into an endless loop. Does anyone have any ideas?
======= Error follows below
