Description Steve Hill 2006-12-10 12:10:45 EST
Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure intel8x0 sound card (Intel ICH [NVidia CK8])
2. Try to play a 1-channel audio file using aplay
Actual results:
aplay fails to play:

[steve@rivendell ekiga]$ aplay -D hw:1,0 voicemail.wav 
Playing WAVE 'voicemail.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 22050 Hz, Mono
aplay: set_params:909: Channels count non available

(this only affects mono audio - stereo works fine)

Expected results:
aplay should play the audio

Additional info:
This completely breaks Ekiga, which returns a very unhelpful "couldn't open
audio device" message.

Fedora 4 on the same hardware works fine, so this is functionality that has been
removed/broken in ALSA.

You have to use the plughw device, so

aplay -D plughw:1,0 voicemail.wav

should works for you.

btw. the default configuration should work too (aplay voicemail.wav).

This is a misdiagnosis - I've opened bug #230069 to address the real problem.
