Description Martin Winkler 2006-11-13 11:28:19 UTC
Description of problem:

When nasd service is enabled, I do not hear any sound at all (e.g. no gnome
system sounds).

1. start system-config-soundcard
2. change volume using the slider
3. click "apply"

Now all sounds are ok.

After a reboot: again no sound.

If I disable nasd service using "chkconfig nasd off", the sounds are ok even
after reboot.

The nasd service? I've never heard about it. Don't you think nscd?

Comment 3 Martin Winkler 2006-11-17 23:53:28 UTC
Yes, the "nasd" service:

it's from
# ls -l /etc/init.d/nasd 
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1088 13. Jul 11:59 /etc/init.d/nasd

# rpm -q --whatprovides /etc/init.d/nasd

# apropos nasd
nasd                 (1x)  - Network Audio System server
nasd.conf [nasd]     (5x)  - Configuration file for NAS servers

Comment 5 Frank Büttner 2006-11-20 20:47:27 UTC
nasd is needed for sound output of Qt4.
On my systems I have no problems. I have the follow cards:
SB Live, SB Audidy2, VIA and one with an Yamha YMF-744B Chip.
And all run without problems. So I think it is not an problem at the nasd.
But to check it, some other with this type of sound chip must test it and report
his/her results.
