Hello All,

Replacing  snd_pcm_writei with snd_pcm__mmap_writei gives SEGFAULT in My code.
Works fine with pcm.c. Can ANyone help me on FINDING OUT WHAT MAY BE CAUSE OF SEGFAULT ?
Is any thing specific required for MMAP Write ????

/$$$ Works FINE $$$/
//while ((pcmreturn = snd_pcm_writei(alsaParams->pcm_handle, data, count)) < 0)   // ===>>>>Replaced by below LINE

/$$$ SEG FAULT$$$/
while ((pcmreturn = snd_pcm__mmap_writei(alsaParams->pcm_handle, data, count)) < 0)    // REPLACED ABOVE NORMAL WRTIE WITH MMAP WRITE
                  * My code

Thanks in advance,
Best Regards
