PulseAudio is configured (by default) to grab hw:* instead of
default:*. The implication of this configuration is that dmix and
dsnoop are not active, so if any other application has used either hw:*
or default:* (or dmix:*, dsnoop:*, or asym:*), then the pulse daemon
will throw the above error.
That said, it is fairly straightforward to configure the pulse daemon to
use dmix:* for sinks and dsnoop for sources, but such a configuration
deviates from what upstream recommends, so Ubuntu does not ship such a
configuration active by default.
