Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 598715
XMMS no sound, system sounds OK
Last modified: 2011-06-27 13:17:12 EDT
Description of problem:
XMMS has no sound. Using same settings that worked with FC11.
plugin: alsa 1.2.11 [libALSA.so]
Audio device: default (other settings do not work just like FC11)
software volume control: off
Mixer card: SB Audigy2 ZS [SB0350]
Mixer device: Master
System | Preferences | Sound
Configuration (hardware): Digital Stereo (IEC958) output, and analog stereo input. It passes it's speaker test (both left & right).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
uname -r: 188.8.131.52-112.fc13.i686.PAE
consistent, also true on previous FC13 kernel
Steps to Reproduce:
Connection is IEC958 co-ax to Cambridge Soundworks Dolby Digital (5.1)
VLC generates sound (at last) two changes occurred during the last test effort. Don't know which did the repair.
1 - update to "gstreamer" v0.10.29-2.fc13.i686
2. renamed "/usr/lib/vlc/meta_data/libtaglib_plugin.so" started "vlc", renamed the file back. Repair is "permanent", even across re-boots.
Tested with a standard audio (PCM/WAV) CD, no sound. VLC produces sound (hw: 0,3). I have tried all the ALSA output configurations. When I set XMMS ALSA output to hw:0,3 (not done with working fc11 version) I get the "please check that:" ... message. Same is true with everything except hw:0,0.
Odd - works fine here for me (using rawhide)
Try setting the device to ALSA with and just select the default for the output.
What is pulse audio device chooser showing?
Are you trying to play mp3 files (remember, if it's an MP3, try with a non-mp3 and if it works, report the fault to the rpmfusion guys who provide the mp3 support)
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '13'.
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 13'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 13 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 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 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.
