Description Daryll 2008-10-25 22:44:21 EDT
Description of problem:
In previous versions of fedora you could type 'play sound.wav' and play an audio file. Now sox is configured to not have a default audio device. Since pulseaudio seems to be the default choice these days shouldn't sox default to pulse?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. play /usr/share/sounds/warning.wav 
Actual results:
play sox: Sorry, there is no default audio device configured

Expected results:
Audio plays

Hi, I was able to reproduce it and I think I found what's wrong. Could you please try to install sox-devel to see if it helps?

Comment 2 Daryll 2008-11-04 12:28:32 EST
I just installed sox-devel and now 'play /usr/share/sounds/warning.wav' works correctly.
Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2008-11-05 08:03:34 EST
Yeah, I see what's wrong here. Working on a fix now.

Changing version to '10'.

Not sure why this is still open, it should be fixed in F10 and rawhide.
