Description Chris Runge 2002-08-12 20:28:38 EDT
Description of Problem:

Milan 4 / Limbo 2

I'm running basically the standard Workstation installation type and
can't get hardly any sound by default under GNOME. The only app that
gives me sound (I have a detected SB Live!) is Chromium. Diving deeper
into the problem it appears that esd is started automatically (even
thought it is turned off in the sound preferences) and that programs
that use sound through esd don't actually play sound. 

Issuing a killall esd solves the problem temporarily. All programs then
play sound--xmms, tuxracer, playwave, etc.--all work fine. 

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


How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Workstation class
2. start GNOME
3. try to start an app that plays sound (e.g., xmms, tuxracer)

Actual Results:

Comment 3 Chris Runge 2002-08-22 16:48:31 EDT
can I see 67217? (I don't have permission right now)
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-22 17:05:04 EDT
I think this is fixed in rawhide, sopwith can give details.

67217 is an internal tracking bug, not related to the technical issue.
Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-23 12:13:59 EDT
OK, we believe this to be fixed now. Need control-center libgnomeui esound 
updated packages to test.

Fix confirmed with control-center-2.0.1-7 and libgnomeui-2.0.3-2.
Comment 9 Jim Hall 2002-09-01 14:12:11 EDT
FWIW: I had the exact same problem .. could play sound only from the command
line, but X apps (such as xmms) would not play sound.  Updating to these RPMs
fixed sound from X apps (from GNOME) under the Red Hat Public Beta "(null)":


These were on rawhide as of this afternoon (1PM US/Central.)
