Description of problem:
gnome-sound-recorder does not work. The program launches just fine, but when you press the record button, the record time does not advance, nor is any sound recording.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: The record timer does not advance. No sound is recorded. Except for the fact that you can press the "stop" button, it appears that nothing has happened. No errors appear if you launch from a terminal window.
Expected Results: After you press record, the record timer should advance. When you press "stop" you should have a sound file to play.
We noticed this on several RHEL WS machines with different sound cards here at our University. Otherwise, sound appears to be working fine on these machines.
gnome-sound-recorder had a _lot_ of bugs, and the RHEL4 version still uses
If you're interested in a fixed version in RHEL5 (there were too many crashers
to put it in RHEL5), contact your support representative to get an updated
version in RHEL5.
Otherwise it will have to wait for RHEL6 I'm afraid.
