Audio issues on RC2 (posted here since RC2 thread is closed)

Two primary issues -

  1. Looks like the sound system needs updating. There are a couple of errors that reference this below.

  2. It is easy to crash pc-mixer with the following:

    • Click the icon and select ‘Mixer’
    • Select pcm0 as the audio output channel
    • Go to ‘Mixer Controls’ and click on the ‘vol’ controls (L or R - doesn’t matter).
    • Bada boom - bus error or segmentation fault.

Here is some text from running pc-mixer from the terminal and playing with the controls:
