[SOLVED] '(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred'

Hi,
First, sorry for my english, I'm French. tongue

When I try to launch a game using Wine and Primus (with primusrun), I get a very very bad sound and many errors in the terminal (every 200ms) like this :

ALSA lib pcm.c:7843:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred
ALSA lib pcm.c:7843:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred
ALSA lib pcm.c:7843:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred
ALSA lib pcm.c:7843:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred
ALSA lib pcm.c:7843:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred
ALSA lib pcm.c:7843:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred
ALSA lib pcm.c:7843:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred
ALSA lib pcm.c:7843:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred
ALSA lib pcm.c:7843:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred
ALSA lib pcm.c:7843:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred

The sound doesn't really bother me, however the CPU is a little overloaded (60 % instead of 25% normally) because of that.
I've already tried many things like that :

I've seen "pasuspender -- performous" and try this, I got many errors and the sound was KO. (But no longer errors... lol)
(When i launch performous, i have the same error, so I conclude that Wine and Primus are not responsible for this.)

I've tried to add 'tsched=0' in the /etc/pulse/default.pa file at the line : "load module module-udev-detect"
I've tried this : http://tux-is-gaming.blogspot.fr/2014/0 … cover.html
But I think pulseaudio doesn't start because i have no longer sound and VLC says that it can not load the default sound card.

What should I do ?
Thank's.
Faeris

You can try

aconnect -x 

before starting pulseaudio. This disconnects programs directly connected to ALSA, blocking pulseaudio.

I don't understand what you mean ? Pulseaudio start automatically with the system ?

Re: [SOLVED] '(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred'

Pulseaudio has settings similar to alsas buffer_size, increase those.

Refrain from using outside guides without understanding what you are actually doing, you probably should default your configuration for pulseaudio first, before attempting anything else.

@affenkaraffe What would the alsa sequencer connection manager have to do with this issue?

Thank's for your answer !

I'm not sure what I should do, I verify the default settings with your link and it looks normal.

I have this in the terminal :

Did you miss the link I posted? It looks like a step by step guide to me. Strip the configuration out of comments with `egrep -v '^#|^;' configuration-file`.

Re: [SOLVED] '(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred'

Okkk i didn't understand. So,

default-fragments = 5
default-fragment-size-msec = 2

Solve my problem !!
Thank you very much !
