I found and fixed the problem. Hopefully it can be released when 1.0.32 goes out.

Thanks for the report.

 

Like someone suggested in the thread, we have had problems with our alsa code before and reading your bug thread, it feels very likely, there are still bugs left. Especially since the problem doesn't show up with pulseaudio.

 

 

Do you remember if Spotify 1.0.29 (the previous testing release) also segfaulted?

 

I will try to recreate the problem with 1.0.31, alsa, linux 4.6.

Hi,

 

Spotify 1.0.29 was working very well, not segfaulted at all. Indeed I used the current version for a while before it beging to segfault.

 

Thanks!

I'm facing the same issue. I'm on arch linux with Linux 4.6.2 and alsa 1.1.1. Spotify 1.0.29.92 works fine.

Same on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with LTSEnablementStack (Linux 4.4.0-24-generic, alsa-base 1.0.25+dfsg-0ubuntu4).

I have managed to reproduce it as well, which means we are closer to be able to fix this.
