Description Stephen Rasku 2001-08-04 17:42:42 EDT
How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install Roswell
2. Add User
3. Login as user
4. startx (This starts KDE)
5. Select Sound | System Notifications from Control Center
6. Select "Play sound" for any event.
7. Click on the folder button to open the sound folder
8. Select any sound and press Preview button

Actual Results:


Expected Results:

Sound should play.

Additional Information:

This is an Athlon 600 with an old ISA SB16 card in it.  I have RH 7.1
installed on the same machine (different hard drive) and don't have any
problems hearing the sound on it.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-08-04 17:49:51 EDT
Works on all of my machines (P3-450 with an ISA SB16, P3-850 notebook with ESS
Maestro3 chipset, Celeron 400 notebook with ESS Maestro 2e, Dual-P3-733 with SB

Do you get any error messages on the console when you run startx?
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-08-04 17:50:18 EDT
Also, could anything else be using the soundcard?
Comment 3 Stephen Rasku 2001-08-04 18:11:27 EDT
I am seeing the following in /var/log/messages:

Aug  4 15:06:01 cr34090-a modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-slot-0
Aug  4 15:06:01 cr34090-a modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-service-0-3

I don't think that anything could be contending for the sound device.  I just
did a workstation install.  I installed KDE but didn't install GNOME.  I haven't
 knowingly setup anything else to use sound.

I'll attach my XFree86.0.log as well.

Comment 5 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-08-04 18:15:54 EDT
So sound isn't working at all (outside of KDE)?

Then I guess you forgot to set up your soundcard (the installer does NOT detect
ISA soundcards).
Did you run sndconfig?
Comment 6 Stephen Rasku 2001-08-04 18:25:17 EDT
Running sndconfig fixed it.  I don't remember having to run it before.  Maybe my
memory is going...

Marking WFM.
