Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 468567
play no longer has a default device
Last modified: 2008-12-10 10:35:11 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. play /usr/share/sounds/warning.wav
play sox: Sorry, there is no default audio device configured
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?
I just installed sox-devel and now 'play /usr/share/sounds/warning.wav' works correctly.
Yeah, I see what's wrong here. Working on a fix now.
Fixed in sox-14.1.0-5.20081105cvs.fc10:
I've requested the tag override for Fedora 10:
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Not sure why this is still open, it should be fixed in F10 and rawhide.
