Description Suhan Andrei 2005-07-24 23:06:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc3 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:

Point is that some cards( noticed on :see below lspci output) in alsa may have only index not null for a certain device name.
(actually think at index zero is a device that is not simple see also libasound->snd_mixer_find_selem in mixer/simple.c)

Fix is to add also index in combo of mixer names.

Including device index into the combo strings make it posible to select any mixer device. Otherwise plugin will always select a device with index zero as one can see in parse_mixer_name() from Output/alsa/audio.c

------Output/alsa/configure.c --------
static int get_mixer_devices(GtkCombo *combo, int card)
	GList *items = NULL;
	int err = 0;
	snd_mixer_t *mixer;
	snd_mixer_elem_t *current;

	if ((err = alsa_get_mixer(&mixer, card)) < 0)
		return err;
	current = snd_mixer_first_elem(mixer);
	while (current)
	  static char mixer_name[512]={0};

		const char *sname = snd_mixer_selem_get_name(current);
		if (snd_mixer_selem_is_active(current) &&
		    /*must add also the index in name*/
		    int index = snd_mixer_selem_get_index(current);
		    snprintf(mixer_name, 511, "%s,%d", sname, index);

			items = g_list_append(items, g_strdup(mixer_name));
		current = snd_mixer_elem_next(current);		
	gtk_combo_set_popdown_strings(combo, items);

	return 0;
