Description Eric Bair 2006-06-29 05:53:16 EDT
Description of problem:

When I open system-config-soundcard and attempt to play the sample sound using
my Audio Creative Sound Blaster Live 7.1 card, no sound was played, and I was
instructed to file a bug report.

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


How reproducible:

Occurs every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open system-config-soundcard.
2. Select the "Creative" tab.
3. Press the "play" button.
Actual results:

No sound is played, and I am instructed to file a bug report.

Expected results:

The test sound should be played, and I should be able to use my sound card to
play audio on my system.

Additional info:
I can still play sound using my onboard AC97 sound device, but Fedora doesn't
seem to be able to use my Sound Blaster card.  I don't know if something is
configured incorrectly on my system, or if this is some kind of bug.

At any rate, I am attaching the /root/scsound.log file that was produced when I
ran system-config-soundcard.

Could you please check "alsamixer" utility ("alsamixer -c 0") and try to set up
some channels/switches?
Comment 3 Eric Bair 2006-06-30 16:30:50 EDT
I can set some channels and switches using alsamixer without any problems. 
However, I can't hear any sound when I test my Sound Blaster card on
system-config-soundcard even when I set every channel to maximum volume.
Comment 4 Martin Stransky 2006-08-17 06:25:34 EDT
Could you please check on console:

"aplay -D plughw:0,0 /usr/share/sounds/phone.wav"

The latest ALSA drivers may help, how-to is here:

Comment 5 Eric Bair 2006-08-18 18:04:38 EDT
I tried executing the command you listed above, and my system didn't play any
sound.  I tried upgrading the ALSA drivers, but that didn't seem to help.
Comment 6 Martin Stransky 2006-10-13 11:42:45 EDT
Could you please run system-config-soundcard and attach an updated
