Description Chris Spencer 2008-05-31 15:03:08 EDT
Description of problem:
AOSS will occassionally lock-up and consume 100% CPU.

How reproducible:
Almost every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install festival and run: echo "the quick brown fox" | aoss festival --tts
2. Notice some sound may play, but will be cut-off, then 100% CPU will be
consumed until you kill aoss/festival.

Additional info:
I'm assuming the problem is AOSS and not Festival, since Festival runs perfectly
if you remove "aoss" from the above command (albeit, as long as nothing else is
using sound). Please let me know if there's any other way I can test for the
Comment 1 Chris Spencer 2008-05-31 15:32:02 EDT
A few more observations. The problem only occurs when aoss/festival is the only
application trying to access alsa. If I open Audacious, start to play some
music, and pause, then aoss/festival run perfectly.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 11:29:18 EDT
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
