Description Mike Becker 2003-04-03 21:53:22 UTC
Description of problem: While using the KDE control center in Red Hat Linux version 9.0 to modify system notification sound files, I tried to change a sound file by clicking on the icon for the file manager utility only to learn that no sound files were listed. These files are indeed there as I used Konqueror to be sure they were, but while trying to change a sound file as described here results in the files not being displayed. Everything is set properly, btw. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Red Hat Linux v-9.0 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Boot into RH 9.0 2.Open the KDE Control Center 3.Click on Sound & Multimedia 4.Click on System Notification 5.Try to select any non-standard sound file by clicking on the 'folder' icon 6.Work your way thrue the file tree to /usr/share/sounds/ - no sound files shown just directories Actual results: No sound files displayed to choose from - and yet these files are there when view with Konqueror... Expected results: As above Additional info: System is a stock HP Pavilion 750n except for a second HDD installed...

Todat, 4/4/03, I reinstalled Red Hat 9.0 and this "bug" was found to be 'fixed'. Why all wasn't right on my first installation I don't know but please disregard this listing as all is now OK. Thank You, k3ant

Addendum I have since come to learn that there is indeed a bug, as described above, with Red Hat Linux 9.0. For this bug to happen RealPlayer 8.0 needs to be installed! To find this out I re-installed RH 9.0 and added my web browser plugins one by one while checking for these sound files as above. Every time I installed RealPlayer 8.0 the sound files as described above were no longer displayed. I tried to versions, or packages, of RealPlayer - one labeled RealPlayer7 and the other labeled RealPlayer8 but when installed both are listed as RealPlayer7. I cannot be the only person/system to experience this... Mike

Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks. Red Hat Linux 7.3 and Red Hat Linux 9 are no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. They are maintained by the Fedora Legacy project (http://www.fedoralegacy.org/) for security updates only. If this is a security issue, please reassign to the 'Fedora Legacy' product in bugzilla. Please note that Legacy security update support for these products will stop on December 31st, 2006. If this is not a security issue, please check if this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release. If so, please change the product and version to match, and check the box indicating that the requested information has been provided. If you are currently still running Red Hat Linux 7.3 or 9, please note that Fedora Legacy security update support for these products will stop on December 31st, 2006. You are strongly advised to upgrade to a current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable. Some information on which option may be right for you is available at http://www.redhat.com/rhel/migrate/redhatlinux/. Any bug still open against Red Hat Linux 7.3 or 9 at the end of 2006 will be closed 'CANTFIX'. Again, if this bug still exists in a current release, or is a security issue, please change the product as necessary. We thank you for your help, and apologize again that we haven't handled these issues to this point.
