Problems with Realtek ALC850 sound chip


Hi. I've recently upgraded my box And now I'm using the above soundcard. The problem is that I cannot get sound in doom3:
Code:
------ Alsa Sound Initialization -----
dlopen(libasound.so.2)
asoundlib version: 1.0.6
opened Alsa PCM device plughw:0 for playback
buffer size select failed: Invalid argument
close pcm
dlclose
WARNING: sound subsystem disabled

--------------------------------------
I''ve also experienced problems with xmame, but these were easily resolved:
https://bugtrack.alsa-project.org/al...iew.php?id=483
What can be wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

[edit]
Running the game with +set s_numerOfSpeakers 2 allowed me to play using OSS, but alsa is segfaulting due to the above bug.
