Same problem with me using IBM Thinkpad T43 laptop. Sometimes after I reboot,
the sound works but most often the sound is not working at all and I'm having
the error as shown on my attachment.

Comment 3 Zack Cerza 2007-09-19 13:06:31 EDT
Basically, until I kill -9 pulseaudio and restart it, I've got no sound at all.
Comment 4 Elvin E. Ebora 2007-09-19 21:56:37 EDT
I tried what Zack did (killed pulseaudio and restart it) and the sound works.
Comment 5 Lennart Poettering 2007-09-23 20:42:16 EDT
Do you have install gstreamer-plugins-pulseaudio?

Could you please check whether "pacat /dev/urandom" works and produces some
white noise on your boxes?
Comment 6 Lennart Poettering 2007-09-23 20:42:58 EDT
s/install/installed/

sorry, it's getting late here aorund ;-)
Comment 7 Zack Cerza 2007-09-24 15:40:22 EDT
yum is telling me gstreamer-plugins-pulseaudio doesn't exist.
Comment 8 Elvin E. Ebora 2007-09-24 23:40:01 EDT

Sorry, the name is gstreamer-plugins-pulse
Comment 10 Zack Cerza 2007-09-27 12:29:34 EDT
Yes, I have it installed. And I haven't seen the problem in this report
recently, so I'll close it for now.

Both 'Test' buttons in the 'Audio Conferencing' section of
gnome-sound-properties are doing very, very scary things. I'll file a new bug
about that.
Comment 11 Zack Cerza 2007-09-27 12:34:17 EDT
The "scary things" may have been a false alarm...
