Description John C 2012-09-28 04:25:23 UTC
I have an HP Envy 3040nr:

It has Dre "Beats" speaker. I do not know if they are the cause of the issue, but this computer suffer sever hang ups after log in.
Gnome-shell gdm cannot activate on this computer unless I use a workaround.
This happens with Arch, Ubuntu, Mint, and Fedora.

My workaround is to add "blacklist snd-usb-audio" to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

Without using this workaround, the computer borders on unsuable. The sound applets refuse to even work.

I was unsure under which category to put this.

My OS: Arch Linux x64

This bug still exists, as of 1.1 (the 1.1-9.fc17 package from Fedora 17) on kernel 3.6.8-2, but I suspect it is an alsa bug, rather than pulseaudio.
The behavior is accompanied by this kernel error:

ALSA sound/usb/mixer.c:415 cannot get current value for control 2 ch 1: err = -22

Which happens every couple of seconds.

Upgrading to pulseaudio 2.1 does not resolve the issue.
