Hey Everyone
So Here is the problem i’m on the raspbian OS and I’ve installed a few applications with canonical’s snapcraft store .
The problem is that There is no sound in any of these applications . For exemple, when I launch retroarch with " snap run retroarch" the application work but I have no sound and I have this message in the terminal;

ALSA lib conf.c:3750: (snd_config_update_r) Cannot access file /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf

ALSA lib pcm.c:2266: (snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM default

ALSA lib conf.c:3750: (snd_config_update_r) Cannot access file /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf

ALSA lib seq.c:935: (snd_seq_open_noupdate) Unknown SEQ default


Someone told me to those packages but it is said that it is impossible to find it even if I update my system.
sudo apt-get remove alsa-utils
sudo apt-get remove alsamixer
sudo apt-get install alsa-utils
sudo apt-get install alsamixer

I've also use chmod to make the alsa file accessible but it didn't work.
I've also make my account to the audiogroup but this didn't work too.

Here is my snap connections with a snap application for exemple, retroarch if that can help.

So is there anybody who knows what is the problem is and how to solve it?

Hello,

I don't know if you are still following but since i'm going to be arround this forum for some time maybe i can help you.

Does the "/usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf" file exists on your system ?
I think there is something wrong with your alsa configuration since retroarch can't find the default device.

Alsa is part of the kernel so unless you are missing some kernel modules it's more likely to be a configuration problem.

Can you give us the output of "lsmod" command ?

If you type "aplay -l" (it's a lower L), what's the output ?

Actually having this exact issue. Was using the standard Ubuntu (18.04) signed kernel. Tried latest 5.2.20 kernel, but same result. Also tried reinstalling alsa to no avail.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello,

I think its all related to the fact that alsa lib can't read the alsa configuration entry poin which is /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf.

I've looked at the alsa lib source code and unfortunatly there are no logging of the errno on the "stat" function call that fails so we won't be able to know exacly why it fails (unless you are will to compile alsa lib...).

Can you make sure that all the directories along the path have the +x flag set for all users ?
Code:
# stat /usr
# stat /usr/share
# stat /usr/share/alsa
