Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Just set the xmms output plugin to pulse.
Steps to Reproduce:
Volume goes to 100% and blows the speakers.
The volume should be what the user was using before calling xmms.
I am attaching a patch to fix the problem.
Created attachment 387455 [details]
Let PulseAudio take care of the initial volume.
I have the same issue, but when using mplayer or vlc. The volume is "reset" to maximum, blowing out both by headset and ears ... and it happens always. I have not yet tried the patch, but will do that now!
Duh ... I thought the patch was for PA. Revoking my bug comments from this bug.
The problem you are referring to is called "PA flat volume".
A recent version of vlc and mplayer should have the fix for the volume,
or you always can use the alsa plugin in both of them.
If you set
flat-volumes = no
then it should return pulse to the way it was before (like it was in F10),
without flat volumes.
I was having this problem when running Banshee. Every change of song set the volume at both Banshee and the gnome-panel to 100%, annoying to the neighbours as well as me. Thanks Paulo. Kurt
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '12'.
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 12'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 12 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:
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
