Description of problem:
Redhat-config-soundcard seems to configure and play the test sound, but all apps
which use the sound card do not work. The SiS 7012 knockoff on the ECS K5S7A
motherboard is fixed to a 48khz sample rate which is incompatible with most of
the 44.1 Khz samples used by audio players and the Bluecurve GUI. I was able to
get around this in Redhat 9.0 by installing the Fedora ALSA sound module RPM's,
but they are not available for beta 2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up and test sound card configuration on an ECS K5S7A motherboard
2. Try to use an app which uses the sound system
Actual Results: No sound output from app.
Expected Results: Sound output would be nice.
It would be nice to see ALSA supported some time in the future.
Hmm, I can't really explain this problem. If you are hearing the test
sound ok in redhat-config-soundcard but not in other applications,
then it sounds like the actual bug is with the apps themselves.
FWIW, Fedora Core 2 will use the 2.6 kernel and will use ALSA instead
of the oss drivers. This should resolve this problem. FC2 test 1
will be released later this week. If you continue to see this problem
with FC2, then please reopen this bug.
