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:
Are you using a sound deamon for KDE or GNOME?
Which sound card do you have?
Is sox an i386 or x86_64 package?
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.
