Description Sammy 2005-10-10 15:13:21 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.4; Linux; X11; en_US) KHTML/3.4.91 (like Gecko)  Description of problem: On my SMP x86_64 system at the latest rawhide level, playing a file using play  reports /dev/dsp as busy. The same works on i386 at rawhide level.    I updated the sox rpm to latest cvs (removed the two patches) and this worked  fine.    Looking at cvs I see a bunch of recent alsa changes.  FYI   Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): sox-12.17.7-3  How reproducible: Always  Steps to Reproduce: 1. Try to play a sound file  2. Using /usr/bin/play  3. on a x86_64 system       Additional info:
Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2005-11-11 11:09:46 EST
Are you using a sound deamon for KDE or GNOME?
Which sound card do you have?
Is sox an i386 or x86_64 package?
Comment 2 Sammy 2005-11-11 11:36:59 EST
Happens with or without the use of sound daeomon for KDE.

I have snd_hda_intel 

Sox is x86_64 package. It works fine on my i386 system. Reading from cvs
they have a bunch of fixes for alsa x86_64.

Tested on SMP x86_64 F7 with sox-13.0.0-1.
