Description Jean-Francois Saucier 2008-12-17 16:00:17 UTC
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008111217 Fedora/3.0.4-1.fc10 Firefox/3.0.4

The aoss wrapper has an error in the command. It has an error in the path to libaoss.so.0. The line 10 :

LD_PRELOAD=${exec_prefix}/\$LIB/libaoss.so${LD_PRELOAD:+:$LD_PRELOAD} exec "$@"

must be :

LD_PRELOAD=${exec_prefix}/\$LIB/libaoss.so.0${LD_PRELOAD:+:$LD_PRELOAD} exec "$@"

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install aoss
2.Try to use it
3.Check the wrapper script
Actual Results:  
libaoss.so.0 is not loaded and used

Expected Results:  
libaoss.so.0 is loaded and used

I have another solution. After a discussion about padsp (see bug #476865 : https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=476865), I write a new version of the aoss wrapper to better work with 32 and 64 bits environment.

I will attach the script so you can check it out.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2009-11-18 10:30:01 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '10'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

Fixed since 1.0.17-2.fc10 (Sep 2008), which has never been pushed as a Fedora 10 update unfortunately, however.

As Fedora 10 has reached end-of-life, there won't be a late update for this anymore. The issue is fixed in Fedora 11 and newer, only.
