I can play SAMP/GTA-SA-OFF fine on my Positivo Union PCTV C1260 computer...

But sometimes while i'm playing the sounds get bugged, and on playonlinux debugger flood this:

ALSA lib pcm.c:8306:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred

And while this error is printing i can not play, it's be unplayable, so many lag...

My Wine version: 2.0.2

Wow, those are errors I haven't seen in a few years.  I used to get those with older versions of wine.  This is because older versions did not support Pulseaudio.  Now current versions of Wine support Pulseaudio and you should be seeing those errors.

Maybe your Pulseaudio needs to be updated/upgraded?

Yeah, that bug definitely can kill frame rates in-game and cause audio stutter.

That is so strange. Since you are on the newest version of Pulseaudio and Wine maybe its your PlayOnLinux version?

I haven't seen or experienced those Alsa underrun symptoms in a few years.

Here was the solution we used to apply:


ALSA lib pcm.c:7905:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred

The problem can be remedied by editing /etc/pulse/default.pa 

and changing default parameters to
default-fragments = 5
default-fragment-size-msec = 2 

then restarting pulseaudio by
pulseaudio -k

I'm not sure who should change their settings, Wine, Fedora or others, but hope this helps others make it work.
