ekiga sound capture does not work with 1.0.18.rc3/Upgrade to 1.0.18 final
Last modified: 2009-01-07 23:18:27 EST
Description of problem:
ekiga does not capture any sound in F10 due to a bug in alsa-plugin. Recompiling the rpm with 1.0.18 final tarball fixes the problem. The relevant fix is
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
alsa-plugins-1.0.18-2.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
alsa-plugins-1.0.18-2.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update alsa-plugins'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F10/FEDORA-2008-11952
*** Bug 478737 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
FYI, this affects not just Ekiga, but all apps capturing sound through ALSA (or even just opening a capture device), including Audacity and other PortAudio apps since the fix for PortAudio to support the ALSA PulseAudio plugin (bug 445644) was pushed out. Can this please go to stable in the next push? (There's one currently ongoing, it's too late for this one, but it can be queued for stable once the push is complete.)
Sorry for the delay but I'm having some difficulties with Bodhi and cannot seem to be able to push to stable

As I said, we were in the middle of an update push. Please try again now that the push to testing has completed.
alsa-plugins-1.0.18-2.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
