Description Jon Adcock 2002-05-26 22:58:35 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: 
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.0.0-10; Linux) 
Description of problem: 
 I installed Red Hat 7.2 and upgraded to version 7.3.  I have a Sound Blaster 
Live card and I'm using the provided emu10k1 driver.  Also, I have digital 
speakers.  I was not able to get sound while using Gnome Desktop, so in 
troubleshooting I switched to KDE.   
 When trying to play a midi file, I get an occasional squeak but nothing else.  
No CDs work.  The sndconfig detects the correct card and the "Linus Torvalds" 
test voice works. 
In order to get some sound, I have to: 
1) Type-in  emu-config -d (to enable the digital speakers output). 
2) Open KMIX and place the left/right balance slider one notch to the right 
(if I leave it in the center or anything to the left nothing plays). 
3) Play a midi file and the sound plays, but is "incomplete." 
4) KDE's CD Player ("KsCD") does not work at all and neither does "CD Player". 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Install RedHat 7.2 
2. Upgrade to 7.3 
3. No sound at all 
4. See description for additional steps 
Actual Results:  Prior to running the steps in the description, I got no 
sound.  After running the steps listed in the description, I got midi sound  
(that is almost right), wav files play OK, but no CD Player sound. 
Expected Results:  I expected to have normal sound from midi files, wav files, 
and from music CDs.  I have two players, a CD/DVD player and a CD burner.  
Neither one plays.  This is a dual boot system, and both players work when I 
boot into Windows 2000. 
Additional info: 
I read bug 64578 and it is close, but not the same problem, and the fixes 
listed (emu-config -B off) don't fix this problem.

if 7.2 did work then something funky is going on..

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
