Description Sander 2006-11-20 13:33:02 EST
Description of problem:
When I want to decrease the volume (PCM2) by console it will increase the
volume. (for example: aumix -W -10)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
aumix 2.8

Steps to Reproduce:
1. aumix -W -10

aumix -q gives a higer figure for PCM2.
This will increase volume of PCM2 and not decrease it.

Additional info:
same problem for line1 and I think it will also occur with the other options.

Well, this is an odd one.  Doesn't look to me as if aumix has changed in ages,
so I can only assume something in the optargs area has caused this.  The issue
is in common.c:SetShowNoninter() :

                change = (int) strtol(optarg, NULL, 10);
                if (errno)
                        change = 1;     /* For compatibility with versions 1.15
to 1.17, assume one if no number was given. */
                if (*optarg == '+') {   /* increase */
                        right += change;
                        left += change;
                        right = (right > MAXLEVEL) ? MAXLEVEL : right;
                        left = (left > MAXLEVEL) ? MAXLEVEL : left;
                } else {        /* decrease */
                        left -= change;
                        right -= change;
                        left = (left < 0) ? 0 : left;
                        right = (right < 0) ? 0 : right;

If change is negative, which it appears to be with, say, "-v -5", the '-='
actually adds the delta.  I can only assume, as this worked up until fairly
recently (FC5, BTW) that something (optargs?) was stripping the '-' leaving a
+ve value which needed subtracting, but that's not the case now.

I've patched mine with the following attachment, and suggest that as the fix. 
I've put a copy of the RPM on my website (http://repos.fnxweb.com/).  Original
reporter will have to rebuild the SRPM for the FC6 as I'm not on that yet.

Comment 3 Sander 2006-11-28 11:02:44 EST
the RPM (FC5) is working on FC6. Thanks.

Who will put this new aumix package in the /updates directory of fedora?
How does this work? (I'm quite new to bugzilla)

You need to select correct component for your bug report, then you are talking
with the right people. This is aumix issue IMHO and not Xorg one. I have changed
component to the hopefully correct one and so somebody relevant will see this
bug soon.
Comment 5 Gabriel Somlo 2006-12-29 08:36:01 EST
This should be fixed already in aumix-2.8-11.fc[5-7]
