[alsa-devel] ALSA default buffer sizes (recent now being subscribed with correct address... hopefully)

Hi there,

I'm somewhat upset because audacious does not work with my AU8830. The
problem is that audacious never calls any function that would give any
clue about the desired buffer size. So my AU8830 ends up with 32
periods, 1 byte each. Great ! I'm not going to blame the author of
that driver :P ... but:

The question is, who is the entity deciding those default values ?
Other soundcards seem to get reasonable defaults, but the AU8830 does
not. So I would like to fix that, but I want to do that at the right

Best Regards, and many thanks for any hint.
