Description Ruben Vermeersch 2009-04-13 06:32:45 EDT
When playing audio (either through banshee or totem-gstreamer, which both use pulseaudio), pulseaudio aborts after a few minutes with following error:

E: alsa-util.c: snd_pcm_avail() returned a value that is exceptionally large: 4294952652 bytes (24347804 ms).
E: alsa-util.c: Most likely this is a bug in the ALSA driver 'snd_intel8x0'. Please report this issue to the ALSA developers.
E: alsa-util.c: snd_pcm_dump():

E: rtpoll.c: Assertion 'usec <= ((pa_usec_t) 1000000ULL)*60ULL*60ULL' failed at pulsecore/rtpoll.c:548, function pa_rtpoll_set_timer_relative(). Aborting.

Using alsa directly works fine (and is currently my only option to get any sound output).

This is rawhide:
