Description Stepan Kasal 2008-06-30 12:41:17 EDT
The sound stopped playing, both from console and from X Window.

Sound Preferences, started from System|Preferences|Hardware|Sound from the main
menu. If I click Test, I get a message box with:

audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink:
Internal GStreamer error: state change failed.  Please file a bug at

I also tried to run ConsoleKit in a terminal window and got:

$ ck-list-sessions 
	uid = '0'
	realname = 'root'
	seat = 'Seat1'
	session-type = ''
	active = FALSE
	x11-display = ''
	x11-display-device = ''
	display-device = '/dev/tty1'
	remote-host-name = ''
	is-local = TRUE
	on-since = '2008-06-30T10:56:35Z'
	idle-since-hint = '2008-06-30T16:18:45Z'

This is wrong, I'm logged in as kasal, and X window was started by "startx".

My system is a mix of F-9 and rawhide rpms.

If this report can help to fix something, I'd be happy to help with debugging
according to your hints.

Looks like a ConsoleKit bug to me. Then again if you're running a mixture of F9
and Rawhide rpm's maybe that's why.
Comment 2 Edouard Bourguignon 2008-09-15 17:55:47 EDT
I have same problem on a clean rawhide Fedora alpha1. No sound, no hibernate, and no shutdown/restart is allowed from user session. This is not so low severity. It was working few days ago.

Most likely a duplicate of bug 462160
Comment 4 Edouard Bourguignon 2008-09-16 12:19:13 EDT
yes for me gdm-2.23.92-4.fc10 has fixed this bug too.
