Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 472543
Muting PCM channel on Intel HDA/Realtek ALC883 results in clicking
Last modified: 2009-11-26 04:30:38 EST
Description of problem:
Muting the PCM channel by dragging the slider all the way down (e.g. in Gnome Volume Control or alsamixer) results not in silence, but clicking.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start audio.
2. Open Gnome Volume Control.
3. Slide PCM down to the bottom.
Still present with alsa-lib-1.0.18-6.rc3.fc10.x86_64.
kernel-188.8.131.52-159.fc11.x86_64 w/ ALSA drivers 184.108.40.206.g75fc7.0.gfb064
Still there with kernel-220.127.116.11-32.fc11.x86_64, alsa-lib-1.0.20-1.fc11.x86_64. Could be a driver issue, reassigning to kernel.
Putting PulseAudio in the way mitigates this. The problem still exists, but is now somewhat moot so I doubt it will be fixed. Closing here, but keeping open in the ALSA tracker.
