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):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Select an option for Sound Events
3. Click the Test button
See description - either nothing or an error message depending on which Sound Event playback option I chose.
See description - I should have heard a test sound.
Sound worked on this laptop when I had Fedora 7 loaded
What's the output of:
ps aux | grep pulseaudio
rpm -qa "*pulse*"
[root@T23 ~]# ps aux | grep pulseaudio
root 2572 0.0 1.1 34280 6040 ? S<l 09:04 0:05
root 3744 0.0 0.1 4124 700 pts/0 S+ 11:01 0:00 grep pulseaudio
[root@T23 ~]# rpm -qa "*pulse*"
This is a duplicate of bug 438448. See the temporary workaround
Btw, this is not a control-center bug since a utility as aplay
does not work when invoked from the shell either.
Sound is actually back for kernel package 126.96.36.199-106.fc9.
Closing as a duplicate then. Glad it's fixed now.
