Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 119582
Intel i8x0 issue
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:39 EST
Description of problem:
During installation clicking "Play Test Sound" the first time does
not work. I have to click it twice. The second time the sound works.
But this seems to be reset on every reboot, the alsa mixer settings
seem to not be being saved correctly. To get sound working again after
a reboot I have been able to use the System Settings -> Soundcard
Detection Tool. Sometimes it works on the first try, sometimes on the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Try to play sounds, it doesn't work
3.Open System Settings -> Soundcard Detection, click "Play Test Sound"
Working sound after 2 tries.
This should work on the first try and not be reset on every reboot
I have an 810 card also. My sound level was not heard on the first
click. I readjusted myvolume level on my speakers and clicked again.
This time,it blasted out loudly.
This should work on the first try. Working on the second try is good,
except I'm a bit deaf now.
Please try 1.2.8-1 or later.
I completed a fresh install from today's rawhide build. Sound worked
on first click.
I think the whole installation is in a pretty decent state.
Not sure if M Gavin is having issues still.
I believe that Bill's update has fixed this bug. Gavin, please reopen
this bug if you are still seeing this behavior from the updated packages.
*** Bug 120313 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
system-config-soundcard-1.2.8-1 is in RHEL4 Alpha4 as well as Fedora.
Tried RHEL4A4 WS x86-64 on a xw4200 and xw8200. Sound is still not
audible at firstboot. After booted, only once I've increased the PCM
and Phone-in Volume controls do I start to hear audio - such as
playing a wav file.
The issue you are seeing with the default volume of zero is a
different issue than the original bug report. This bug report was
caused by a race condition where system-config-soundcard was trying to
play the test sound before the module had actually be loaded.
Please take a look at bug #126212 for the bug report related to the
zero default volume level.
