Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 378081
Gnome fails to detect any sound devices.
Last modified: 2009-01-09 00:10:51 EST
Description of problem:
Gnome does not detect any sound devices. It is likely a pure Gnome issue because
system-config-soundcard does detect the Creative Labs SB Live! just fine and can
produce test sounds with it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@sarmax ~]# rpm -q gnome-audio
[root@sarmax ~]# rpm -q system-config-soundcard
[root@sarmax ~]# uname -a
Linux sarmax 220.127.116.11-42.fc8 #1 SMP Tue Oct 30 13:05:10 EDT 2007 i686 athlon
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Gnome session select System->Preferences->Hardware->Sound and press Test
button placed behind "Sound Playback" text;
2. Run system-config-soundcard and press Sound Test button;
1. I will get this error message "audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert
! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink: Internal GStreamer error: state change failed.
Please file a bug at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=GStreamer."
2. Guitar will start playing.
Gnome manager should produce no errors and should be able to play music or
whatever sound events.
If this has anything to do with this issue then this computer has 2 soundcards:

Please make sure your machine is fully updated to the latest Fedora 8.
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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:
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.
