nasd inhibits sound output
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:48 EST
Description of problem:
When nasd service is enabled, I do not hear any sound at all (e.g. no gnome
1. start system-config-soundcard
2. change volume using the slider
3. click "apply"
Now all sounds are ok.
After a reboot: again no sound.
If I disable nasd service using "chkconfig nasd off", the sounds are ok even

The nasd service? I've never heard about it. Don't you think nscd?
Yes, the "nasd" service:
# ls -l /etc/init.d/nasd
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1088 13. Jul 11:59 /etc/init.d/nasd
# rpm -q --whatprovides /etc/init.d/nasd
# apropos nasd
nasd (1x) - Network Audio System server
nasd.conf [nasd] (5x) - Configuration file for NAS servers
okay, but this package is from extras. reassigning....
nasd is needed for sound output of Qt4.
On my systems I have no problems. I have the follow cards:
SB Live, SB Audidy2, VIA and one with an Yamha YMF-744B Chip.
And all run without problems. So I think it is not an problem at the nasd.
But to check it, some other with this type of sound chip must test it and report
