Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 432399
sound is irreparably lost when switching between tty1 and X
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:54:43 EST
Description of problem:
When playing video clip on the console using aaxine, the sound subsystem becomes
unusable after switching back and forth between tty1 and X a few times during
playback. After the audio is lost, it is not usable in X or on the console.
The mixers (alsamixer and gnome volume control) do work, but they have no effect.
Also, it does not seem to matter whether the user sound system is set to alsa or
pulseaudio in "Sound Preferences".
I tried restarting the ConsoleKit service and bringing the system down to
runlevel 3 and and the back up to runlevel 5. Neither of these restored the audio.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xine-lib-1.1.0 (compiled from source)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install xine-lib
2. play a video clip (with audio) using aaxine on the console.
3. switch back and forth between tty1 and X several times
sound becomes unusable between the console and X.
System is a HP Compaq dx5150.
This does not happen when switching between standard ttys (tty1 and tty2).
Sound is muted when switching to tty2 and restored when switching back to tty1.
Upgraded the following packages from yum repo "development" but the problem did
not go away.
This issue appears fixed in F9.
