Description of problem:
XMMS will not load playlist. XMMS will not play any audio. Tried all the other
built in audio players and all have the same problem. All these programs worked
fine before installing 8.0. I installed clean after my system was angry about
an upgrade from 7.3 due to Ximian installs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start any audio program
2.Try to play music
Actual Results: No audio output. If I load a playlist, it just flies through
the list and stops. I remember seeing this before and just reinstalled xmms to
fix. But this looks like a sound server problem?
Expected Results: Music plays
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 74632 ***
I still get no audio output from any type of music files.
I can do a detect sound card, and hear the music, but it seems that none of my
system sounds are working either. I enabled them from the control panel(gnome)
but can't hear anything. XMMS does think it is playing music, so am I missing
OK, what sort of files are you playing, and what is the *exact* behavior. Does
it play at normal speed, with the normal animation, but no sound? Does it just
skip the file?
I used a CD and it played at normal speed with no sound output.
And this worked ok on 7.3 in the same machine?
Hm, is the mixer turned up, and is the sound driver loaded?
This worked on 7.3
I have the mixer in the panel and it is all the way up. I am not positive that
the sound driver loaded, but when I do System Settings->Sound Card Detection It
shows up as module I810_audio, and the test sound works fine.
This problem is specific to kernel 2.4.18-17.8.0. Once loaded, no audio
applications work. Removing kernel 2.4.18-17.8.0 and reverting back to
2.4.18-14, sound works.
I didn't upgrade the kernel until after reporting this problem. Do you still
want me to go back to 18-14?
Re: 2.4.18-17.8.0 and no sound: This affects my laptp with its ESS ES1983S
Maestro-3i PCI soundcard using the maestro3 driver, but not my workstation with
a Creative SB LIVE! that uses the emu10k1 driver.
