alsa plugin configure tries to list also mixers for input only cards. (attachement contains possible fix)
Last modified: 2008-05-06 12:09:51 EDT
Description of problem:
FC5 with audio card and webcam ( Logitech QuickCam Comunicate STX) .
Logitech QuickCam Comunicate STX has only microphone device and provide a mixer
for recording volume control.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm -qa | grep xmms
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.17-1.2157_FC5 #1 Tue Jul 11 22:55:46 EDT 2006
i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Logitech QuickCam Comunicate STX in a FC5 pc. It reproduces always.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Logitech QuickCam Comunicate STX installed in system
2. Context menu of xmms
3. Options->preferences -> Audio I/O Plugins tab
4. Select alsa plugin ( libALSA.so )
5. Click "Configure Button"
6. Mixer Card listbox contains "USB Device 0x46d:0x8ad" which is an input only
I get the USB device included in "Mixer Card", and when selected the list of
mixer devices does not become empty. It has items from previous mixer card.
Because Logitech QuickCam Comunicate STX provides only an input mixer it shall
be excluded from the list.
I have atached an archive with a possible fix. it contains original file from
Output/alsa/configure.c fixed file and diff.
The main idea for fix is that function
static int get_cards(GtkOptionMenu *omenu, GtkSignalFunc cb, int active)
shall filter out the cards that have no output mixer.

unified diference of fix
xmms is in Fedora Extras since FC4, moving/reassinging.
This ocurs as well for fc6 ( fc6 extras ) , seems no change in about 6 months ,
and there is a possible fix ! hmmm amybody there ?
It seems fine in Rawhide. I'm pushing a fixed version for rawhide tonight and if
it's happy, put into FC6 next week.
