If you use CrunchBang Linux or upgraded from Debian Wheezy (now stable) to Debian Jessie (testing) for sure you got problems with pnmixer, alsamixer , aplay etc.
The error : ALSA lib control_ext.c:664:(snd_ctl_ext_create) ctl_ext: Plugin version mismatch
Mixer attach default error: No such device or addressSegmentation fault
The solution :
126.96.36.199-1 (Debian sid). There are two ways of doing this:
Download the package from Debian Packages Page and then:
dpkg -i /path/to/the/deb(you will have to solve the dependencies manually
The easy way:
vi /etc/apt/sources.list and replace testing with unstable. Once this is done run apt-get update (DO NOT RUN dist-upgrade or upgrade because this will update the whole system) and then install the package by
apt-get install alsa-utils=188.8.131.52-1 .
Next step is to revert back the source.lst to point to testing and you are good to go! :-)
