Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 478737
portaudio-19-6 breaks compatibility with some apps.
Last modified: 2009-01-06 15:26:29 EST
Description of problem:
Some portaudio apps don't work anymore since update to portaudio-19-6
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Run an incompatible (?) app and get an error message. Examples are performous or ultrastardx.
Program hangs (only killable with kill -9) with error message:
Expression 'snd_pcm_start( stream->capture.pcm )' failed in 'src/hostapi/alsa/pa_linux_alsa.c', line: 2082
Expression 'AlsaStart( stream, 0 )' failed in 'src/hostapi/alsa/pa_linux_alsa.c', line: 3272
Program runs fine.
portaudio-19-5 runs fine
Looks like the dreaded alsa-plugins-pulseaudio capture bug (which is triggered by the PortAudio update because it now finally supports PulseAudio).
See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=478311 and https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F10/FEDORA-2008-11952 .
The submitter confirmed on IRC that the alsa-plugins-pulseaudio update from updates-testing fixes this. Closing as a duplicate.
