Troubleshooting

If you are experiencing sound/quality issues when running pianobar, and you are currently using the ALSA as your sound driver, the following fix may be useful:

  • Install alsa-oss. See the ALSA page for more information.
  • Change the default libao driver from alsa to oss.
/etc/libao.conf
default_driver=oss
  • Now to run pianobar:
$ aoss pianobar
Note: The provided fix may affect other applications that use audio since the default driver is being changed. Switch back to the normal configuration at anytime by editing /etc/libao.conf
