Description Sean Bruno 2005-04-08 17:03:44 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050328 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-3

Description of problem:
My machine has an on-board audio device and I have added a USB Headset.  I am unable to set the USB Headset as the primary audio device.  It is listed in the pull down to change the audio device, but when I exit the application, the on-board is still the default.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  On a machine that has an onboard audio card(AC97), add a USB headset.
2.  Run the soundcard-detection program
3.  Set the default audio device to the USB headset.
4.  Play something music like.

Actual Results:  When you play a song or some kind of music, the output will still stay on the on-bpard audio device.  In addition, if you re-run the soundcard-detection application, the on-board will be the default again.  

Expected Results:  Audio should come out the USB headset, if the application is using ALSA.  Also, the soundcard-detection application should reflect that the default audio device is the USB headset, not the on-board AC97 device.

Additional info:

I am running FC4T1 on a Dell Latitude D800.  The USB headset(which works just fine BTW), is a Plantronics DSP 300.

/etc/modprobe.conf looks like this:

alias eth0 tg3
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
options snd-card-0 index=0
install snd-intel8x0 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-intel8x0 && /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-intel8x0 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-intel8x0install snd-usb-audio /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-usb-audio && /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :

This is a "not saving sound settings" bug, so possibly a dupe of bug 132575.
Comment 2 Mary Ellen Foster 2005-04-08 17:22:31 EDT
FWIW, the same weirdness happens with an external USB sound card (Soundblaster
MP3+) combined with an AC97 internal card.
Comment 3 Sean Bruno 2005-04-08 17:53:22 EDT
I am not savvy enough to determine if this is a duplicate of 132575.  However,
that one references volume settings which appear to be fine on both devices for
my machine.

I am more interested in the the changing of the default sound device, which
definitely is not a duplicate issue.  Please let me know how this issue is
caused by the aforementioned bug.  I just don't see the issue that I am seeing
being described in 132575.
