When starting process dies. Sometimes immediately, sometimes later. No output even on debug. Nothing on backtrace even with unstripped binaries. Just signal 11.

I vaguely remember this was discussed either in the IRC channel or in TG. Can we include that information here?

TL/DR: Was working before, not working now. There was hardware changes, previously working outputs were 4 and 5, now 1 and 2. Probably issue is triggered when same sound output is opened twice via different command args: -F/-f. However fixing configuration is just changing signal from 11 to 6.

In the end I just disabled sndiod ans went back to OSS, it was much more stable for me... I'll try to enable back and retest.

Well, that was a bad idea:

1. Second output connected.
2. sndiod crashes on signal 6.
3. Now even without sndiod it's not possible to play sound, direct play to OSS doesn't work too.

Had to reboot.

Is it worth investigating more on that one ?

Actions #6

Sincerely: I'm not sure. If someone else is using sndiod then yes, but actually it's not required, everything works on bare OSS for me right now.

Ok, so closing this one for now. Thanks for the feedback.
