Description Santiago Erquicia 2003-10-17 18:47:08 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031014

Description of problem:
The sound test fails.  I can't hear any sound from my microfone.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open gnomeeting
2.Open the configuration druid
3.go to page 4/7
4.press the Test button

Actual Results:  I speek at my microfone and there is no output.  I tried
setting the devices to every possibility (see at additional information)

Expected Results:  I hear my input 5 seconds later

Additional info:

I don't know if this is the component that I should have selected.

Gnome sound recorder works with my soundcard without any problem but the gnome
volume controler when opens has two tabs with the legend unknown.  One important
thing is that under gnomemeeting appears as if I had two "audio player", "audio
recorder" and two mixers for each one.

I think that the problem is with the detection of my soundcard but as the gnome
sound recorder works well I supose that the problem is in gnomemeeting.

microphone setup can be a pain sometimes.

Does the driver for your soundcard support full duplex? (i.e. recording and
playing at the same time.) Some cards/drivers don't, and this means you can't
use them with gnomemeeting.
Comment 2 Santiago Erquicia 2003-10-22 11:07:21 EDT
I works fine with windows, so I think it should work.  I don't know how to test
it.  Can I test it using the gnome-sound-recorder and playing music?

Anyway, what it is really suspicuous is that I have two devices for each one.
Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2003-10-23 06:02:24 EDT
I guess if you can record with gnome-sound-recorder and play some sound at the
same time full duplex is supported.
Comment 4 Santiago Erquicia 2003-10-23 09:48:09 EDT
I tried playing music with rhythmbox and recording with gnome-sound-recorder and
everything worked fine, so I suppose it is full duplex
Comment 5 Santiago Erquicia 2003-11-23 14:08:28 EST
OK, today I installed the alsa packages from freshrpms.  I updated my
/etc/modules.conf and my sound card is working.

Now I have no problem with gnomemeeting.  I did the tests and
everything is working fine.  It only appears one device (as it should
be) and not two as before.

Is there any plan to switch to alsa?
Comment 6 Santiago Erquicia 2004-08-11 08:18:42 EDT
Now that alsa is configured by default everything is working fine. 
Should we close this bug?
