I've got a rather special problem with my sound setup in Squeeze. At the moment i'm totally stuck and i'm looking for some good hints what i could do to better understand the problem i'm having.
I've got a fully updated squeeze with all pulseaudio, alsa and jack config files beeing the defualt. I purged all packages today and reinstalled them.
The problem is, that my pulseaudio server crashes always after ten minutes of playing sound with any application.
I've got an internal sound card playing my sound and a external usb midi interface attached (Midisport 2x2).
The crash seems alsa and midisport related. Because every time when the crash happens, i'm getting the following message in my syslog:
pulseaudio: module.c: Failed to load module "module-alsa-card" (argument: "device_id="1" name="usb-0763_1002-00-M2x2" card_name="alsa_card.usb-0763_1002-00-M2x2" tsched=yes ignore_dB=no card_properties="module-udev-detect.discovered=1""): initialization failed.
My /var/log/messages says at the same time:
pulseaudio: pid.c: Stale PID file, overwriting.
Next line in syslog is:
pulseaudio: pid.c: Daemon already running.
And the connection of my application to pulseaudio is gone. If i restart the application, everything works fine for another 10 minutes.
Any idea, why pulseaudio wants to load that module, although, i'm not using it?
What to do to get the module loaded correctly or not loaded at all?
The funny thing is, that pulseaudio wants to load my midi device although i'm not using it at that particular moment! The midi interface just works fine, if i use it with rosegarden, and no crashes there.
BTW: I've got the midisport-firmware installed
