Description Arthur Baldwin 2005-01-05 18:03:40 UTC
Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

The sound works in the default desktop (Gnome) but not in KDE.  I'm
using Apt to update FC3 from ayo.freshrpms.net repository only.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install current release of FC3 from DVD
2. run as root and switch desktop to KDE
3. switch MTA to Postfix
4. install Apt from freshrpms.net with default sources.list
5. perform two commands with Apt (apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade)
6. use SoundCard Detection item on menu system
7. Properly detects hardware as "Via 82xx"
8. Does not successfully play a sound.

Actual results:

Expected results:

Got a book, "FC3 Unleashed" and discovered that ALSA is the default
sound system, so I tried setting the levels and saving them with
"alsamixer" and "alsactl store 0" but with no improvement.

Comment 2 Arthur Baldwin 2005-01-07 15:17:44 UTC
Well, I'm not sure which package update fixed this problem, but when I
used up2date to update FC3, the problem was resolved.  It took me a
while to realize that the problem had been resolved.  Why?  Because
you have to "lie" to "SoundCard Detection" and say that you heard the
sample sound.  Then you have to use "alsamixer" to set the levels. 
During this operation you will notice that more "channels" are now
showing up.  Use the right and left arrow keys to select the desired
channel, up and down arrow keys to set the level, and press ESC when
finished with all settings.  Then issue the command "alsactl store 0"
to store the settings.  You should now be able to hear the system sounds.
