Restoring iChat’s alert sounds in Tiger

Tuesday, August 29th, 2006

A problem in CoreAudio, Tiger’s new system-level sound manager, can cause iChat and other applications to stop producing sounds. I noticed it at first when iChat no longer alerted me to incoming messages with a lilting yoom. The solution seems to be to reset a background process called coreaudiod when it loses track of what sounds go where.
