Description Roman Rakus 2009-04-22 03:32:00 EDT
Description of problem:
gnome-volume-control doesn't provide any chance of changing device. I don't want to use pulseaudio and want to use alsa, but gnome-volume-control doesn't allow it. Previously it was possible.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. gnome-volume-control
2. Wanna change device?
Actual results:
No chance

Expected results:
Just like in fedora 8 possibility to choose device.

Additional info:
Isn't it regression?

Changing what device to do what?
Comment 2 Roman Rakus 2009-04-22 04:49:49 EDT
ah, sry
In F-8 you have in menu File -> Change Device -> and you can choose from a list alsa, OSS, PulseAudio...
Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2009-04-22 05:58:05 EDT
The output devices and input devices show up under their own tabs.

We use PulseAudio, we don't show the underlying ALSA devices, and certainly not OSS devices.
Comment 4 Roman Rakus 2009-04-22 06:24:31 EDT
And why not show ALSA devices? Now is only two choices: Delayed sound with PulseAudio or not any sound. People who want normal playing sounds should go to another desktop?
Comment 5 Bastien Nocera 2009-04-22 06:47:58 EDT
Then file a bug against PulseAudio please.

The volume control uses PulseAudio, it doesn't use ALSA. And working around the problem by showing ALSA devices doesn't actually help us at all.
