Description of problem:
Whenever I play a sound, it keeps repeating endlessly in an infinite
loop until I kill the application playing the sound. In cases where
esd is used, I must kill esd.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Play a sound
Actual Results: The sound repeats endlessly
Expected Results: The sound play just once
I'm using a VIA 8237 AC97 controller.
Does this only happen with alsa-using apps, or all apps?
Appears to work with all apps now that i've checked, including non-alsa.
So, you can't reproduce it now?
Let me correct myself here. It appears to happen when using programs
using esd. So this is an esd problem then. Programs that communicate
directly to Alsa do not show this behavior.
I seem to have the same problem. Sound works fine for the GNOME CD
Player (and I assume all other CD audio) but in other applications
(i.e., GAIM, XMMS, Rhythmbox, etc.) the first second of the sound just
loops over and over again. I'm using the same controller as well.
