Description Edney Matias 2008-10-17 00:06:30 EDT
Description of problem: Running KDE Live CD with all updates applied. Right now with my normal user I can't watch a movie and listen to music. The first application locks the audio device. If i run as root I can do that flawless. If i log on gnome with my normal user I also can do that. What's wrong with KDE?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Running 
kde 4.1.2
Linux r2d2 2.6.27-13.fc10.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Oct 15 01:50:46 EDT 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Logged as a normal use in KDE, open amarok and start playing music
2. then open dragon and find a movie to watch
3. there is no movie sound, only music coming from amarok
Actual results: Amarok locks the sound device.

Expected results: I think pulse audio would enable me to achieve that!

Additional info: I also get ticks on sound, especially on the beginning of a track on amarok for example.

Tried debugging this in #fedora-qa , but I was unable reproduce the problem.

(Seems) like pulseaudio isn't running. ?

When this happens, open a terminal or konsole, what does:
ps aux | grep pulseaudio

Hi there,

writing to let you know that after Friday updates audio is now working. I can open amarok and dragon player for example and both produces audio at the same time. Can't achieve this with amarok and Flash player on Firefox, but I'm running preview of Flash 10, so it's fine here.

Thank you.
