Description Michal Jaegermann 2008-01-30 16:25:59 EST
Description of problem:

With 20080130 changes for rawhide applied gnome-volume-control
does not work anymore.  The first time on a session startup one
gets an alert:

"Volume Control" has quit unexpectedly
If you reload a panel object, it will automatically be added back to the panel.

After that there is not even an alert and a volume control on a panel
is no longer there.

Attempts to start it from a terminal window produce messages:

(gnome-volume-control:4423): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: specified class size for
type `GstOssMixerTrack' is smaller than the parent type's `GstMixerTrack' class size

(gnome-volume-control:4423): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_once_init_leave: assertion
`initialization_value != 0' failed

(gnome-volume-control:4423): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_new: assertion
`G_TYPE_IS_OBJECT (object_type)' failed

and a return with a status 1.

In ~/.xsession-errors one can find

ALSA lib control.c:909:(snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL front:0
ALSA lib control.c:909:(snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL front:0

and these are only messages which would look possibly relevant.

There are new complaints from pulseaudio in /var/log/messages but
pulseaudio was last time updated six days ago.  Running strace
on gnome-volume-control does not make me any wiser here.  I am
afraid that I do not see any obvious candidates in the last
series up updates for taking a blame for this breakage.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-media-2.20.1-7.fc9

Additional info:
This is on x86_64 machine if of any relevance here.

console-kit and pulseadio were _not_ in the latest set of updates
but now complain as follows:

The last two lines were showing up for a while but that was about it.

Already fixed, please use gstreamer-plugins-base 0.10.17.
Comment 2 Michal Jaegermann 2008-02-01 14:01:27 EST
It does work currently although I had to re-add manually a corresponding
icon to a panel.  Something was "user-friendly" enough to dump it
for me at the first sign of troubles. There is no volume control on
menus so this behaviour assumes that a user is knowledgable enough
to find and add that icon after some temporary hiccups.  I am not so
sure that such assumption in justified in every case.

To make that more exciting a picture which shows up on "Add to Panel"
list is not even close to what was on a panel before it was dumped.
That is "double no-good".
