Description of problem:
gnome-sound-recorder is missing from package, although
the pixmaps in /usr/share/pixmaps/gnome-media/gnome-sound-recorder
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This has been taken out for now and may be added back for FC5.
Can this bug be reopened and gnome-sound-recorder added back now in FC-6 and/or
I just built the grecord subdirectory from the gnome-media CVS on FC-6 and the
gnome-sound-recorder works fine for me.
How useful is it? From my persepctive it is a quality issue. It works on some
releases but not others, on some soundcards, etc. I would think it would be
better to work on getting something like Jokosher in the release which gets more
love in the multimedia department but it might be a bit too complicated for
things like voice notes. I would really like to see an app for voice notes and
not a simple recorder. In any case it is not my decition anymore and gstreamer
has been getting a lot better in the recording area recently so I will reopen
and reasign to the current gnome-media maintainer.
It's too late to re-add gnome-sound-recorder to F7, IMO. I'll do this as soon as
we're out of freeze after F7.
*** Bug 186065 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
it's an important apps so why do you not include it in fc7 and even in fc6
updates? this was missing untill now so it can't break too much thing. even a
bugy gnome-sound-recorder is better than nothing.

Agree , also I don't see any good substitute for sound record.
Re-added for Fedora 9. Let me know if it works for you.
for fedora-9???? currently we at fedora-7!!
at least add it for f-8!
you can't loose anything is and additional feature so can't break anything which
is working now.
it's a shame that currently skype is the only possible way to graphically test
microphone in gnome:-(
No can do. It was too late for me to add it to Fedora 8, as it was breaking the
feature freeze. "yum --enablerepo=development update gnome-media" will do the
trick to install it on any F7 or F8 machine.

But it can be added to updates-testing for F-7 and F-8 after the F-8 release
right? Then if it works OK in updates-testing, it could be pushed to F-7/F-8
too late? it's a bit foolish since it was reported than 2 years ago:-)

And it was still broken until I fixed the bugs upstream a couple of weeks ago.
