Description Michael Opdenacker 2004-04-29 04:55:08 EDT

Description of problem:

Sound card detection works fine for me and detects the
below card:

Vendor: Intel Corp
Model: 82801CA/CAM AC'97 Audio Control
Module: snd-intel8x0

The test sound always plays fine.

The problem is I never get any sound before I run
system-config-soundcard ("Soundcard Detection" application)
and play the test sound.

So, I have to run this utility everytime I boot.
I'm using GNOME, but this happens with KDE too.

This happens on my laptop since FC2 T1, and didn't happen
with FC1.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot your computer
2. Run xmms ... no sound (xmms doesn't even complain in GNOME)
3. You have to run system-config-soundcard and play the
   test sound to be able to hear your OGG files in xmms.

Expected Results:  system-config-soundcard should only be run once,
and its effects should be permanent. I guess it's a matter
of loading the right module at startup...

I suspect this is the second bug mentioned in bug 119400 where the PCM
sound channel is muted by default.  To confirm this, you could try
running alsamixer from a terminal emulator and ensuring the relevant
channels are unmuted and have a reasonable volume (noting particularly
the Master and PCM channels).
Comment 2 Michael Opdenacker 2004-05-11 04:20:57 EDT

I've installed all the updates available on May 10,
and I'm no longer facing this issue.

Sounds now works as soon as I start a sound
application like xmms.

You may set this bug as Fixed.

Thanks for everything!
