Where to report ALSA cutoff issue after Stretch update?

Wed Sep 25, 2019 2:01 pm

I see that lots of people are having "XXX cutting off", where XXX:{aplay, espeak, espeak-ng, ...}, after updating Stretch to Linux 4.19.66-v7+ #1253 SMP Thu Aug 15 11:49:46 BST 2019 armv7l (and also some Buster folks).

Code: Select all

aplay  /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav
cuts off at "Front Cen" in my case.

Where can I check to see if this has been reported officially, and to watch for repairs?

Reverting just the kernal back to 4.14.98 Feb 12 2019 fixes the issues for me:

Code: Select all

sudo rpi-update a08ece3d48c3c40bf1b501772af9933249c11c5b
sudo reboot
Updating just the kernal to the latest with:

Code: Select all

 sudo rpi-update
 sudo reboot
also fixed the aplay cutoff, (and espeak-ng distortion, but not espeak distortion).

Worth trying rpi-update - think I saw something in there that was trying to fix this.

Or wait for the next official release. Not long IIRC.
