Description John Dvoracek 2008-05-25 11:43:20 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008043010 Fedora/3.0-0.60.beta5.fc9 Firefox/3.0b5

Description of problem:
Sound does not work at all on this Thinkpad T23 (and worked fine under Fedora 7). I have four choices for sound playback: two produce no sound and the other two produce clear errors.  Intel 82801CA-ICH3 and OSS produce the error: "audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink: Could not open audio device for playback. Device is being used by another application."  ALSA and PulseAudio (and Autodetect) do not give the error message but also do not produce any sound.  Thank you!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. System>Preferences>Hardware>Sound
2. Select an option for Sound Events
3. Click the Test button

Actual Results:
See description - either nothing or an error message depending on which Sound Event playback option I chose.

Expected Results:
See description - I should have heard a test sound.

Additional info:
Sound worked on this laptop when I had Fedora 7 loaded

What's the output of:
ps aux | grep pulseaudio
rpm -qa "*pulse*"
Comment 2 John Dvoracek 2008-05-25 12:03:46 EDT
[root@T23 ~]# ps aux | grep pulseaudio
root      2572  0.0  1.1  34280  6040 ?        S<l  09:04   0:05
/usr/bin/pulseaudio --log-target=syslog
root      3744  0.0  0.1   4124   700 pts/0    S+   11:01   0:00 grep pulseaudio

[root@T23 ~]# rpm -qa "*pulse*"

Thank you!

This is a duplicate of bug 438448. See the temporary workaround
at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=438448#c8
Btw, this is not a control-center bug since a utility as aplay
does not work when invoked from the shell either.
Comment 4 Joachim Frieben 2008-08-03 05:05:57 EDT
Sound is actually back for kernel package
Comment 5 Bastien Nocera 2008-08-08 09:02:15 EDT
Closing as a duplicate then. Glad it's fixed now.
