Description of problem:
The whole story is that I plugged in a USB sound card
(http://www.osnews.com/story.php?news_id=4158) and Kudzu found it but..... I got
everything explained here:
Please read for the explanation in the Gedit window of that screenshot.
So, I had no sound, and the primary function of the iMic, being a microphone,
was not available at all in the volume control panel.
I got sound back after re-running the "Sound Detection Tool" on Severn after
removing the USB device. Then though, I found another, new bug now in the Volume
Control in the notification gnome-panel area. Because the USB device was
disconnected, it would not default to the second one, the SBLive, it would just
move its handler eratically. I had to quit the panel app and restart it and now
As you can see, ALL of the apps showing there had bugs in respect to the USB
audio, but I was advised to file a bug report with Kudzu first. I will also be
filing reports with redhat-config-soundcard and gnome-media.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in your iMic
2. Run Red Hat Severn
3. Watch Kudzu asking you 7 times to configure the device.
Actual Results: No sound, multiple devices found by Kudzu instead of one,
redhat-config-soundcard was not recognizing it at all, volume control woudln't
show all the sliders available, volume control in the notification area would go
berzerk after removing the USB device intead of defaulting to SBLive (second
audio card in that PC)
Expected Results: hmm.. to work... to have two working audio cards, recognized
by all pref panels.
Dual Celeron 533 Mhz, 256 MB RAM, Matrox G400 AGP, BX chipset Intel.
7 audio devices is expected; it shows up as 7 USB audio devices. Kudzu is at
least working as designed.
