i can reproduce that on a foreign ps 3 with fedora 9 installed.

Comment 2 Rui Matos 2008-06-30 17:07:51 UTC
Should probably be marked as a dup of #444684.

Comment 3 Rudolf Kastl 2008-06-30 20:29:25 UTC
#2 from my personal feeling and from reading the target report it seems to be
that it is more likely to be not a dupe.

how do you come to the conclusion?

kind regards,
Rudolf Kastl

Here some more information...

This is very likely an ALSA bug. This assert just checks if when we access the
mmap'ed DMA buffer the data is actually aligned whith channels interleaved. That
check fails, Which means there is something wrong with the information ALSA gave
us first. We ask for SND_PCM_ACCESS_MMAP_INTERLEAVED. Apparently ALSA didn't
give us that, but something that resembles more SND_PCM_ACCESS_MMAP_COMPLEX. But
it said it gave us _INTERLEAVED. If alsa lies to us we hit this assert. 

Reassigning to the kernel, because this most likely the alsa kernel drivers need

Comment 7 Jaroslav Kysela 2008-11-04 17:13:24 UTC
This problem should be fixed in 1.0.17 alsa-lib update package.
