Description Mark Cooke 2002-12-25 20:29:26 EST
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021218 Description of problem: Trying to play either mp3 (with is probally disabled) or ogg's with rhythmbox doesn't output any sound. All the menu items work and other icons and options, but clicking on play fails to play the selected music and the time elapsed bar fails to move as well. Running it with the '-d' option for debugging, fails to produce any useful output. These files work fine in nautilus with the mouse over and also in xmms. All volumes is turned up and esd enabled Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open rhythmbox and choose Organise | Add to Library 2. Select files/files 3. Hit play and nothing happens Actual Results: nothing (sorry but no usefull debugging info) Expected Results: Play selected files Additional info:

Running it with LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 set should work. This is an issue with NPTL, as I recall.
Comment 2 Mark Cooke 2003-01-02 13:48:05 EST
Adding LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 before running rhythmbox now starts playing the song (i.e the slider bar and time playing now moves), but sound still fails to come out. I have enabled esd and turned up the volume for psm in gnome-volume-control. If I open the same song with xmms, it plays perfectly. This is an ogg format song encoded to 320 kb/s
Comment 3 George Karabin 2003-01-03 17:50:59 EST
I get sound out on my box when I pick up the LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 variable. If this can't be fixed upstream in time for release, an easy hack workaround for the gnome panel was to replace rhythmbox with a shell script that sets the variable before running it. (An obvious hack, but I thought it was better to mention it than not).

rhythmbox was removed from Rawhide recently right?
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-10 23:45:45 EST
Yes, but we'd still like it to work. ;)
Comment 8 Ulrich Drepper 2003-04-17 13:45:12 EDT
Try with glibc 2.3.2-27.9. I think I remember there were some issues with condvars in this package. This glibc version has a condvar implementation which should work fine.
Comment 9 Jonathan Blandford 2003-07-30 19:29:41 EDT
Rythmbox has been forked twice since this bug, and gstreamer has been reved a number of versions. We also don't ship it. Closing.
