Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1025962
sound volume adjust causes "loss of sound device" in applications
Last modified: 2015-02-17 13:59:53 EST
Description of problem:
Running AUDACITY while changing volume using mouse wheel on panel icon. Audacity locks up ... when it finally recovers, if it does, the sound output device is gone. This happens with free and non-free audacity.
Running VLC while changing volume using mouse wheel on panel icon. VLC sound starts looping over short section of sound that was most recently played.
Sound settings are not remembered from one boot to the next.
All of this started after a recent update ...
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open app that uses sound output device
2. Change the volume
Another "data point" ... I got an error on the "bluetooth" subsystem
[abrt] blueman-1.23-2.fc17: PulseAudio.py:214:card_cb:KeyError: 'bluez.path'
So I started paying more attention to the sound issues ... sure enough ... turned off the bluetooth radio (usb) and the webcam (usb), which I had noticed blinking on/off, and rebooted.
The problem was gone. Audacity and VLC both work while adjusting the volume.
btw ... ABRT did not refile the blueman report for fc19 even though the bug was reported against FC17.
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is

of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
