Description euphgeek 2005-08-28 09:10:41 EDT
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.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
Ever since I updated glibc using yum, I have been unable to get any sound from my speakers.  I have tried restarting the sound server (artsd) and I have even tried issuing the command "cat <soundfile> >/dev/dsp" but nothing ever happens.  When I issue the "play" command from the command line, it acts like it's playing the file but no sound comes out.  There are no error messages and my speakers are on and plugged in to the correct jack.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to glibc-2.3.5-10.3
2. Restart X server
3. Try to play a sound file

Actual Results:  No sound comes out of my speakers

Expected Results:  I should hear sounds coming out of my speakers.

This cannot possibly have anything to do with glibc.  Run strace on the programs
in question to see if you see a failure and where.

strace play /usr/share/sounds/KDE_Beep_Beep.wav

Here is the output of strace.

That strace dump is useless, as play is forking, invoking another program and
that hasn't been traced.
If you really want to claim this has anything to do with glibc, you need to
prove it first.  I.e.:
1) go back to glibc-2.3.5-10 (or whatever other glibc you claim worked),
   but only downgrade glibc (and its aux subpackages), nothing else
2) strace -f -o working play /usr/share/sounds/KDE_Beep_Beep.wav
   (as long as it works in that case)
3) upgrade to glibc-2.3.5-10.3 (and its aux subpackages), but no other packages
4) strace -f -o nonworking play /usr/share/sounds/KDE_Beep_Beep.wav
   (as long as it doesn't work in that case)

Never mind, I figured it out.
