Description:I create a conference with an ALSA channel so that multiple phones can listen to the audio feed coming into the sound card from the TV. I did this because ALSA can only seem to handle one call at a time. After about a 1.5 minutes the audio from the ALSA channel drops out, the conference remains up, but in the CLI the only channel you can see is the DAHDI pseudo channel. Neither the ALSA channel nor any of the phone SIP channels appear, yet when I hang up the phones I see all the channels being hung up.

****** STEPS TO REPRODUCE ******

To reproduce it setup alsa.conf to using to use the sound card for input. Use the snippet of dialplan code I will attach. When you dial the extension that drops you and the ALSA channel (via CLI originate command) into the conference the audio will drop out after a minute and a half.


I will attach alsa.conf, dialplan code, and output from the CLI.

I updated all the glibc packages on Centos 5.4 from glibc-2.5-42.el5_4.3 to glibc-2.5-49.el5_5.2 and the problem has disappeared.

Per the Asterisk maintenance timeline page at http://www.asterisk.org/asterisk-versions maintenance (bug) support for the 1.6.0 and 1.6.1 branches has ended. For continued maintenance support please move to the 1.6.2 branch.

More information on this change can be found in the release announcement: http://www.asterisk.org/node/49924

Closing as

1) 1.6.0 and 1.6.1 branches are no longer supported other than for security releases

2) The reporter states updating the glibc libraries makes the problem unreproducible.

If the reporter continues to have problems, please re-test with 1.6.2 and open a new issue. Thanks!
