Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439533
Last modified: 2008-04-14 19:53:36 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm getting no notification sound when I configure to use one.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I compiled the rawhide package on F8:
all the time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure to play notification sound, default or custom
2. set a timer
3. timer completes
4. no sound
It seems debian patched in a fix:
- use gstreamer instead of gnome.sound_play (Closes: #408396)
Actually I do have sound and I'm also using a recompiled version of the rawhide
package on F8.
Interesting. Seems gnome.sound_play() doesn't work for some reason on my
machine. Going through gstreamer works fine though.
Ok, I think I see the problem, gnome.sound_play->gnome_sound_play->esd.
esd/pulseaudio never worked properly on my machine, but that's not your problem.
I guess I'll live with the current situation as is. thanks.
I'll do some more testing on other machines. If I hit the same problems than you
I'll apply the patch. Thanks for the hint anyway.
Since I cannot reproduce this anywhere I will close it NOTABUG. If someone else
hits it feel free to reopen. Thanks.
