Description Stéphane Rochoy 2007-09-22 04:33:30 EDT
Description of problem:

I started a fresh install of the Fedora 7. During the install process, my sound
card, a Silicon AC'97, was properly detected and set up, i.e., I heard the
melody after using the "play" button.

Once the Fedora completly installed, I installed some packages, including XMMS
and audio-convert-mod. I then converted a few MP3 to Ogg and used XMMS to play
them: everything was just fine.

For now, XMMS refuse to play the same Ogg files with a "Couldn't open audio"
error message.

Going to the "Audio configuration" panel and using the "sound test" section of
the first selected card (Integrated Systems [SiS] AC'97 Sound Controller) don't
let me hear anything. So after clicking No, I get the message :

Automatic detection of the sound card did not work.  This audio device will not
be available on the system.

And here I am :)
  
Actual results:

Using XMMS to play a Ogg file: Couldn't open audio
Using the "Sound test": Automatic detection of the sound card did not work. 
This audio device will not be available on the system.

Expected results:
In both cases, something should be heard.

Additional info:
The problem persist accross reboots and is systematic.

This morning, sound is ok. So I was wrong when I said the problem is systematic.

It's caused by your USB sound device when is plugged during boot. You can try to
rewrite your configuration files (in system-config-soundcard).

A motherboard problem? Anyway, it seems to solve.
Comment 8 Martin Stransky 2007-09-27 09:31:33 EDT
No, driver for your sound-card was not loaded because the it was blocked by USB
driver. There's a for for that in the latest system-config-soundcard in F8.
Closing as rawhide...
