Description of problem:
Audacity does not support record-only sound devices, due to an oversight in the detection routines. The attached patch fixes this. It does not affect the successful detection code path, but modifies the failure path to test for record-only devices.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect record only sound card
2. try to select sound card in audacity

Actual Results:  Sound card is not available for selection

Expected Results:  Sound card available as recording device

When submitting patches like this, please always mention whether you are in
contact with the upstream developers about this.  http://audacity.sf.net

Comment 3 Ralf Ertzinger 2005-02-14 12:02:41 UTC
For the record: I am not in contact with upstream about this. Upsteam (well,
portaudio19, which is in 1.2.3 also but not used in this build) does not have
this  specific problem (but lots of others).

Comment 4 Rahul Sundaram 2005-07-17 15:31:51 UTC

Priority set to high since patch is included.

Comment 5 Matthias Saou 2005-11-30 15:25:55 UTC
Does 1.3.0 (beta) still have this problem? Just wondering, since it's just
been released, and is (at last!) wxGTK 2.6 and gtk2 compatible, so it's the
path Extras will en up taking some day anyway.

Comment 6 Ralf Ertzinger 2005-11-30 15:45:48 UTC
What portaudio version does it use?

Comment 7 Matthias Saou 2005-12-01 10:29:57 UTC
By default, still v18, and v19 optional.
So if the problem is in the v18, and if it's still not fixed in this 1.3.0
(beta), you might want to contact upstream to get a patch in.

Comment 8 Gérard Milmeister 2006-11-12 22:10:46 UTC
Has the bug been fixed in 1.2.5?

Comment 9 Christian Iseli 2007-01-17 23:22:15 UTC
FC3 and FC4 have now been EOL'd.

Please check the ticket against a current Fedora release, and either adjust the
release number, or close it if appropriate.


Your friendly BZ janitor :-)

Comment 10 Gérard Milmeister 2007-02-18 21:20:40 UTC
The reporter should try again with audacity 1.3.2. It currently uses portaudio
v19 and supports ALSA.
