Description Matt Hirsch 2007-11-04 15:07:00 EST
Description of problem: The alsa jackplug no longer works. It worked in previous
fedora versions of alsa, but I can't give a version number.

When the jackplug is configured as:

pcm.jackplug {
        type plug
        slave { pcm "jack" }

pcm.jack {
        type jack
        playback_ports {
               0 alsa_pcm:playback_1
               1 alsa_pcm:playback_2
               capture_ports {
               0 alsa_pcm:capture_1
               1 alsa_pcm:capture_2

And tested with aplay:

aplay -Djackplug /usr/share/sounds/purple/receive.wav

The following error is produced:

aplay: set_params:900: Sample format non available

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): alsa-lib-1.0.14-3.fc7

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure jackplug in .asoundrc as above
2. Test using aplay -Djackplug <some .wav file>
Actual results:
aplay produces the following error message:
aplay: set_params:900: Sample format non available

Expected results:
aplay should route sound into the jack audio connection kit.

Additional info:
This is an alsa configure script bug and has been described here:

Please report it to ALSA project (www.alsa-project.org). Seems to be related to
sound config for your sound card where some plugins are missing (probably the
rate plugin?)
