Description Tom 2007-10-11 15:23:32 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070926 Fedora/ Firefox/

Description of problem:
I am using a PC with a Realtek ALC-262 / Intel HDA and a digital volume dial.
Here is the LSPCI output:
00:1b.0 Audio device [0403]: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller [8086:27d8] (rev 02).
The soundcard seems properly configured but I can hear no sound at all. I've tried to use different output methods:
HDA Intel (ALSA mixer)
Realtek ALC262 (OSS mixer)

No improvement.
No errors are shown anywhere (at least not where I have looked).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Unknown - it seems that the snd-config package is not installed which probably means I am reporting the wrong package.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F8 Test 3 default sound settings.
2. Try run any sound.

Actual Results:
Any soundplayer will play like all is well, regardless of ALSA or OSS.
But no sound is heard.

Expected Results:
Hopefully some nice music would been heard.

Additional info:
My unit has a digital volume dial. I wonder if this is part of the problem....?
Comment 1 Tom 2007-10-12 02:30:50 EDT
It seems more likely now that it is the digital volume dial that prevents sound
from being played in my speakers. I have docked my computer to a docker with
Line out and if I connect my ext speakers with built in amp, the sound works fine.

Is the problem still active? If so I recommend you to file a bug against kernel
- seems to be a hardware issue.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2009-01-08 23:56:39 EST
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
