I tried copying the lines from the T2 modprobe.conf to the T3 one, but
that didn't help.

More or less same problem.
Clean install of FC2T3 (Dunno about test 2)
system-config-soundcard works and tests playing sound _correctly_. You
hear the sound.

Rhythmbox says:
Could not pause playback
Alsa device "default" is already in use by another program.

/usr/bin/play file.ogg works, even under X/GNOME.

gstreamer-properties fails.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-05-21 17:44:13 UTC
Does this behave better in the final release? (A fix went into
modutils for this.)

Comment 3 Eelco Hoekema 2004-05-29 17:59:23 UTC
I've been running FC2 for one week now. Seems sound works perfectly
fine in the final release.

Comment 4 Alan Lehman 2004-05-30 02:03:07 UTC
After upgrade from FC1 to FC2 final release, sound does not work at all.

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2004-06-01 04:43:32 UTC
Can you post your config files (/etc/modprobe.conf*)?

Comment 6 Christopher Beland 2004-06-08 06:17:15 UTC
Bug 122557, 122953, bug 123389, bug 123586, bug 123631, and bug 124497
all seem to be describing the same problem.  Some of these are already
assigned.  Bug 123631 seems to be the best-documented, so I am putting
additional diagnostic info there.  Someone with the right permissions
should probably mark the others as duplicates as appropriate.
