Description Keith G. Robertson-Turner 2008-02-10 06:32:46 EST
Description of problem:
nspluggin wrapper won't produce any audio output without the i386 version of
alsa-libs, specifically /lib/libasound.so.2, which is not provided in the x86_64
repo.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
nspluginwrapper-0.9.91.5-17.fc8

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum -y install nspluginwrapper.{i386,x86_64} pulseaudio-libs.i386
2. mozilla-plugin-config -i -g -v
3. launch Firefox and attempt to view Flash content
  
Actual results:
Video playback with no sound

Expected results:
Sound support

Additional info:
I discovered this by accident (a hunch), and could find no other info about this
anywhere, so presumably there will be a lot of people out there interested in
this solution.

I'm not sure that this is supposed to be the correct behaviour, but it works
regardless.
