alsa not working. Memfd failed to open

Post by lateboomer »


I have installed Clementine player to Dietpi at Usbridge and Clementine is working fine and plays well. However, now I would like to revert back to alsa and squeezelite to play music and Dietpi complains:

root@DietPi:~# aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Noise.wav
shared memfd open() failed: Function not implemented
Playing WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/alsa/Noise.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 48000 Hz, Mono
aplay: set_params:1299: Sample format non available
Available formats:
- S32_LE
- DSD_U32_BE

I ran alsamixer and at Playback section it said there was no controls for the usb device.
I think this issue is caused by pulse audio and how do I revert back to alsa? Thanks for any help on this problem.
