Comment 2 Naveed Hasan 2007-12-14 03:40:54 EST
Probably the same issue in upstream GNOME
Comment 3 Jakub 'Livio' Rusinek 2007-12-14 03:53:01 EST
Exactly the same.
Comment 4 Joachim Frieben 2008-02-11 10:49:37 EST
Upgrading to gnome-session-2.21.90-2.fc9 finally brings back the login
sound. However, there is still no logout sound. As a matter of fact,
there are no other system sounds at all, although it's possible to play
each of them by clicking "Play" in "Sound Preferences". This issue was
reported as bug 430341.
Comment 5 Mark 2008-02-22 12:00:00 EST
i can confirm this issue as well (same with #421841) but am wondering if it
would be possible to get a fix for this in F8? i don't really want to upgrade to
rawhide for just this issue but i do want to have those sounds working.

Comment 7 Jakub 'Livio' Rusinek 2008-03-28 17:36:55 EDT
It works in Rawhide, so this should be closed.

The problem is what resolution should I choose?

NEXTRELEASE or, by intuition, RAWHIDE?
Comment 8 Jakub 'Livio' Rusinek 2008-03-28 17:46:05 EDT
I closed this accidentaly.

Do you mean we can't have this work in F8 and we need to go to the rawhide ?
Comment 10 Jakub 'Livio' Rusinek 2008-03-29 04:54:36 EDT
Some changes made in GNOME 2.22.0 can make harm in F8. Especially port to GIO.

I see no point in backporting GNOME 2.22.0 to F8. It's tradition, that new GNOME
is always in new release of Fedora.
Comment 11 Mark 2008-03-30 13:55:58 EDT
I also see no point in backporting Gnome 2.22.0 to F8 to fix this issue.
I do see a point in simply putting the sound patch in the gnome 2.20.<latest>.
Fedora 8 got PulseAudio. This bug is caused because of that and they should fix
this bug in gnome. Also this bug is exisintg since day 1 of fedora 8 and
probably day 1 since pulseaudio.

Making a fix for this would be nice.
But than again upgrading to Fedora 9 (once released) is way better then staying
with F8. I choose the latest one.

As for the bug. You can close it as: NEXTRELEASE since this got fixed in the
next gnome release (2.22.0) Rawhide doesn't have much (if anything at all) to do
with this bug.
