Updated alsa-lib packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The alsa-lib packages contain libraries for the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA).
Prior to this update, the alsa output plugin for the Audacious Audio Player did not work correctly. As a result, Audacious could under certain circumstances fail to generate any sound and display error messages. With this update, alsa-lib is modified so that Audacious can now generate sound as expected.
All alsa-lib users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
