This is getting weird.
Even with the $HOME/.asoundrc file, I've nailed it down to not being
able to play two sound sources at the same time.
Reboot with USB card plugged, login, run game, sound works. Open browser
(firefox), open youtube, play video, doesn't play, hangs playback until
I close the game.
Close browser and game, start browser and play youtube video, everything
ok. Start game, no error message (as the subject of this bug) but no
Needless to say that none of this happened before the upgrade. I haven't
tried to downgrade libasound2 to previous version, but I can if it helps
