hi all,
i am currently fighting with the snd_pcm_runtime.buffer_size. how is the
value defined?

i would expect:
channels * periods * period_size * sample_bits/8
(in my case 64*5*128*3)

however in the code, i am working on, it seems to be:
periods * period_size
(in my case 5*128)

am i missing something obvious?

thanks, tim
