Your system information

Distribution (e.g. Ubuntu): openSUSE LEAP 42.2
Opted into Steam client beta?: No
Have you checked for system updates?: Yes
Please describe your issue in as much detail as possible:

With the latest update of the steam client, sound is broken.

I see this in the log:

[0427/225333.813590:WARNING:audio_manager.cc(317)] Multiple instances of
AudioManager detected
[0427/225333.813628:WARNING:audio_manager.cc(278)] Multiple instances of
AudioManager detected
...
ALSA lib pcm_direct.c:1722:(snd1_pcm_direct_parse_open_conf) Unknown field
direct_memory_access
[0427/225431.222581:WARNING:alsa_util.cc(24)] PcmOpen: default,invalid argument

Sound works OK in other Linux applications (web browser, media player), only
the steam client is affected.
I can play video (with sound) using vlc. I can watch video (with sound) on
YouTube in Chrome.

No game in the steam client works. All of them complain that there is a sound
problem and then, they crash.

The error message is always:

ALSA lib pcm_direct.c:1722:(snd1_pcm_direct_parse_open_conf) Unknown field
direct_memory_access

I tried FEZ, Factorio and The Stanley Parable and several videos in the store.

Sound worked perfectly when I used it last time (which was a few weeks ago). I
assume that you broke this with a change which you made in the latest Steam
client.

alsa version: 1.1.3 (release 8.6.1, installed Sa 15 Apr 2017)
I'm not using PulseAudio (it's not even installed).
