Description Chris Ricker 2003-09-11 22:34:19 UTC
gnome-media-2.3.7-1

When I start gnome-volume-control, I get the warning that:

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

If I hit details, I'm told that:

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


As a result of this, my system is completely silent regardless of how I adjust
the volume in g-v-c

Comment 1 Chris Ricker 2003-09-12 14:50:59 UTC
Hmm, at least this morning volume adjustment seems to be working now, even
though I still get the errors and such -- now it seems it's more of a cosmetic
problem than a functional one. Not sure why it wasn't working at all yesterday.
Only change was a logout and log back in to gnome....

doh! Chris beat me to this bug. It helps that he's been running rawhide for
awhile... :)

Comment 4 Manmathan Kumarathurai 2003-09-26 13:05:34 UTC
In can confirm the above problem in my system containing gnome-media-2.3.7-1.

Comment 5 Christopher M. Hickman 2003-09-26 17:22:06 UTC
I'm having the same problem, as as stated, it seems to "work", just "complain"
for some reason. I get the same error.

recurrent in Fedora Core (see Bug 105802).

Comment 8 John Thacker 2003-09-29 06:05:46 UTC
As I noted in <A
HREF="http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=105802">Bug
105802</A>, this has been fixed upstream since gnome-media-2.3.8.  See 

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=119979

I downloaded and installed gnome-media-2.4.0, using the SPEC from the 2.3.7-1
package, and the problem went away.  Should be a simple matter of pushing an
upgraded package.

Comment 10 Dave Habben 2003-10-08 15:35:03 UTC
This should be fixed with the latest updates:
gnome-media-2.4.0-1

This should probably be marked as RAWHIDE/CLOSED
