Description Lukas Tvrdy 2009-02-02 08:34:32 EST
Description of problem:
Pulseaudio dies too often.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
pulseaudio 0.9.14
my alsa-info:

How reproducible:
very often

Steps to Reproduce:
Start amarok. After one or two songs played, I found various messages in /var/log/messages and I have to restart pulseaudio.
Actual results:
module-alsa-sink.c: ALSA woke us up to write new data to the device, but there was actually nothing to write! Most likely this is an ALSA driver bug. Please report this issue to the PulseAudio developers.
alsa-util.c: snd_pcm_avail_update() returned a value that is exceptionally large: 268431584 bytes (1521720 ms) Most likely this is an ALSA driver bug. Please report this issue to the PulseAudio developers.
module.c: Failed to load  module "module-alsa-sink" (argument: "device_id=0 sink_name=alsa_output.pci_8086_293e_sound_card_0_alsa_playback_0 tsched=1"): initialization failed.

My messages are full of these tree messages.

Expected results:
Working sound setup, so that I can enjoy music for more than 2 songs,
working Skype as bonus, Twinkle too.

Additional info:
I like Fedora 10. Except from sound issues.
And I don't know whether this is alsa or pulse or kernel bug.
