I have a queer issue with my Arch-Linux System.
I am unable to get any Sound Output when playing audio, AFTER starting X Server.
The issue is not with Volume Controls or Sound Card Drivers because, if I start any kind of Audio playback BEFORE starting X Server, I have absolutely no issues. The Audio keeps playing even after X Server starts. But if I pause / stop the audio, on restarting playback, I get no audio output.
Even terminating X Server does not resolve this issue. Rebooting the system though, helps.
I tried with different DE's. Checked with GNOME, XFCE, LXDE, KDE. Same issue everytime. So It's not due to a particular environment, but rather an issue with X.
I am not sure what files I should be checking for this.
