[alsa-devel] set_params:1073: not enough memory

Hello all,

I'm trying to get alsa 1.0.18 working on a ARM PXA processor and I'm 
stuck with the following error message:

aplay /Sinus.raw -fcd
Playing raw data '/Sinus.raw' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 44100 
Hz, Stereo
aplay: set_params:1073: not enough memory

alsa kernel was compiled with alsa 1.0.16, alsa.conf, located in 
/usr/share/alsa is the basic:

pcm.!default {
	type hw
	card 0

	ctl.!default {
	type hw
	card 0

also aplay -l and alsaconf store show the message:

ALSA lib control.c:909:(snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL hw:0

However the card shows up /proc/asound/cards and alsamixer is able to 
access it.

Any ideas?

Best regards
