Now it doesn't hangs :) but speakers-test produces crackling sine and
fails on test...
root at mayonaka:~# speaker-test -c 2 -r 96000 -t
Playback device is default
Stream parameters are 96000Hz, S16_LE, 2 channels
Sine wave rate is 440.0000Hz
Rate set to 96000Hz (requested 96000Hz)
Buffer size range from 32 to 16384
Period size range from 32 to 16384
Using max buffer size 16384
Periods = 4
was set period_size = 4096
was set buffer_size = 16384
0 - Front Left
Write error: -5,Input/output error
xrun_recovery failed: -5,Input/output error
Transfer failed: Operation not permitted
Also i tried mplayer, 96khz works almost fine (very rare cracklings),
48khz plays slow (like playing 96khz sample on 48khz rate without
resampling), 44.1khz doesn't work at all (mplayer doesn't even
show that it plays).
Master control on mixer seems to be working fine.
