If you happen to be using RedHat Linux, there is sound-list redhat com
Since Fedora core, the RedHat lists have been pretty quiet, but they 
should still be able to help. 

For other distros, go to their site and look for the appropriate list.
You will probably need to subscribe to the list. 

As Ryan said, be more specific. 

If you know where to look, you might disable arts. I had a sound problem 
and arts was the culprit. You should be able to turn it off or set it to 
disable itself after 1 second. 

This is not to say arts is your problem. 
It was mine. RedHat9 and Mandrake10 both had conflicts with arts and 
sound drivers.
