Description Matěj Cepl 2008-06-11 14:52:12 UTC
Description of problem:
When my Logitech USB headset is inserted into computer, it is not recognized by
Pulseaudio. However, it is found in lshal output, although not as an audio device.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux viklef #1 SMP Wed May 21 18:12:35 EDT 2008 i686 i686
i386 GNU/Linux

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.insert USB headset into USB slot
Actual results:
Pulseaudio doesn't recognize it as audio device

Expected results:
it should

Additional info:
There might be something about my USB ports, because apparently one of them
doesn't work at all -- lshal doesn't see anything there. But in the other it
does, and it did work just in the morning.

This is a kernel bug

|   |   |-- pcmC1D0c -> ../../devices/virtual/sound/pcmC1D0c
|   |   |-- pcmC1D0p -> ../../devices/virtual/sound/pcmC1D0p

assuming pcmC1* is your USB headset.

Did you reboot into a different kernel since this morning? Can you try this on
an older kernel and if it works figure out what kernel package caused this?

Comment 5 David Zeuthen 2008-06-11 15:05:37 UTC
OTOH, there's

|   |   |-- card1 ->

and I think user space (e.g. HAL) can deal with this. However, that appears to
be a broken symlink (according to 'tree /sys' output).

Matej, can you paste the output of

It doesn't seem like I have new kernel:

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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 9 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 18:05:39 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.
