Description Vasile Gaburici 2008-06-03 14:40:40 UTC
Description of problem:

I've got a Compaq Presario V5000 with an ATI SB400 IXP and Conexant id 30 AC97.
Sound worked fine on Fedora Core 5 with last updates (2.6.20-1.2320.fc5 kernel),
but I get nothing but pops on Fedora 9 ( The two Fedoras
are on separate partitions; I didn't do an upgrade.

AFAICT the sound card gets detected identically by both kernel. The only
difference in `cat /proc/asound/card0/codec97#0/ac97#0-0` is on the last line,
which gives "Line1 rate       : 48000Hz" on F9 but gives 16000Hz on FC5.

The more troubling part is that amixer shows only Master and Capture controls in
F9, whereas in FC5 it printed the entire list (headphone, PCM, etc.) On F9 the
master playback is at 100% by default, so I get loud pops when gnome wants to
play some sound.

Testing with speaker-test and aplay with a wav file also gives nothing but pops
on F9, so the bug seems with alsa rather than higher layers (pulseaudio).

Below is some config info. Let me know if you need more.

Comment 1 Vasile Gaburici 2008-08-30 14:37:25 UTC
It seems that the problem may be related to pulse-audio because sound works with openSUSE 11, which uses a similar kernel, but no pulse-audio. But I don't know how to debug this stuff...

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2009-06-10 01:22:37 UTC
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 15:49:39 UTC
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.
