Description of problem:
When I try to launch the volume controler in gnome, it appears an error window
that says:

An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for
gnome-volume-control. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly.

And in the details says:

Bad key or directory name:
 "/apps/gnome-volume-control/OSS-Unknown-1/Vol  ": ` ' is an invalid character
in key/directory names
Bad key or directory name:
 "/apps/gnome-volume-control/OSS-Unknown-1/Pcm  ": ` ' is an invalid character
in key/directory names
Bad key or directory name:
 "/apps/gnome-volume-control/OSS-Unknown-1/Spkr ": ` ' is an invalid character
in key/directory names
Bad key or directory name:
 "/apps/gnome-volume-control/OSS-Unknown-1/Line ": ` ' is an invalid character
in key/directory names
Bad key or directory name:

in key/directory names


After that the volume control shows two tabs saying unknown.

Mi laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A25-S207.  I don't know really the sound card
that it has, but under hardware browser appears as M5451 PCI AC-link Controller
Audio Device.

Ask me if you need more information

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GNOME Volume Control 2.3.7 (I can't find the rpm)

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open gnome volume controller
2.
3.
    

Actual Results:  an error window appears and then it has two tabs showing unknown 

Additional info:
I can't use my microphone to talk.  I don't know if that means that my audio
card was detected incorrectly

I have the same problem.

I have just made a 'clean' install from the beta CD's and the used YUM to update
my system from RAWHIDE.

I get the same error, but when I click 'more info' I get a empty window.

My sound card is a Hoontech SoundTrack Digital XG

We need to file this on gnome.org, someone should be using gconf_escape_key()
Comment 3 Santiago Erquicia 2003-09-07 14:38:37 EDT
The gnome bugzilla is http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=121693
Comment 4 Dave Habben 2003-09-27 17:14:30 EDT
According to the Gnome bug, this is fixed in 2.3.8

The version that comes with Beta 2 is 
 gnome-media-2.3.7-1

(Someone should update the component from gnome-audio to gnome-media)

This rpm should be rebuilt with a newer version:
http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/gnome-media/2.3/
Comment 5 Dave Habben 2003-10-08 08:49:14 EDT
This bug is fixed with the latest gnome-media:
gnome-media-2.4.0-1

This should be marked as RAWHIDE/CLOSED
Comment 6 Santiago Erquicia 2003-10-08 10:06:25 EDT
I't working fine with the last actualization to 2.4.0
Comment 7 Colin Walters 2004-09-27 14:57:40 EDT
Sounds like this bug is fixed then.
