mpd fails to open mixer

Reported by: Euphorbium <compositum@…> Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: packages Version: Backfire 10.03.1 RC5
Keywords: mpd Cc:


Mpd is configured correctly, all permissions are set correctly, and yet, sometimes it leaves this in log and refuses to work:

ALSA lib control.c:882:(snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL /dev/mixer
Jul 20 16:30 : Failed to open mixer for 'My ALSA Device': failed to attach to /dev/mixer: No such file or directory

After I restart mpd, it works again

I was wrong, it leaves that in log just after start, not when it crashes. I was going to write script which monitors log file and restarts mpd accordingly. Apparently, its not that easy.
