Description Orion Poplawski 2005-12-22 15:45:59 EST
Description of problem:

Fresh install of today's rawhide.  snd-atiixp module is loaded.  Have the
following devices:

[root@adelie ~]# ls -l /dev/snd
total 0
crw------- 1 vasha root 116,  1 Dec 22 12:10 seq
crw------- 1 vasha root 116, 33 Dec 22 12:10 timer
[root@adelie ~]# ls -l /dev | grep 14
crw------- 1 vasha root  14,   1 Dec 22 12:10 sequencer
crw-rw---- 1 root  root  14,   8 Dec 22 12:10 sequencer2


alias snd-card-0 snd-atiixp
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-atiixp index=0
remove snd-atiixp { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; };
/sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-atiixp

At KDE login, I get the message that the sound server cannot open /dev/dsp. 
Shouldn't it be able to detect the alsa device?  (What is the alsa device?)

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

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Ngo Than 2006-01-18 11:48:48 EST
i doubt that it's a bug in arts. Could you please try to play some audio test file
if it works. for example: 

 play /usr/share/sounds/phone.wav

Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2006-01-18 17:00:12 EST
Could be.  

# play pop.wav

Input Filename : pop.wav
Sample Size    : 16-bits
Sample Encoding: signed (2's complement)
Channels       : 1
Sample Rate    : 44100

Time: 00:00.05 [00:00.00] of 00:00.05 ( 100.0%) Output Buffer:   2.15K


No errors, but no audible output.

Sound working in latest rawhide kernel.
