Description Marius Andreiana 2002-12-27 14:43:26 UTC
Press Record on toolbar.
Now Play is enabled and Stop is disabled ( should be the other way ).

After trying another action the application frozens.

Comment 1 Warren Togami 2002-12-28 00:49:05 UTC
What sound card is this?  What kernel module?

Does recording work in any other application?

Comment 2 Marius Andreiana 2002-12-29 12:54:11 UTC
soundcard: Creative 128 PCI.

I haven't tried other applications, but 
cat /dev/dsp > test.raw 
cat test.raw > /dev/dsp

I couldn't record with gnome-sound-recorder in gnome 2.0 too, but I hoped
gstreamer will fix the problem.

Reopening for tracking.

Sound card: Creative Labs Ensoniq 64 (ES1371), [Audio PCI-97, Rev. 08] PCI card.
I know the card is woking. If I connect my portable SW/AM/FM radio from its earphone
plug to either 'line-in" or "mic-in", I get sound through my speakers. However,
"record" the slider *DOESN'T* move, though the application says: " recording"....

File Information reports a file size, but when I select "save as" the sound
recorder hangs
with the mouse hourglass pointer ...OR  I get an "untitled.wav file of 0 bytes.
 I've also
tried recording with two different stereo microphones (one from an old recordable 
Sony Walkman, and the other from a recordable Aiwa portable cassette 'walkman').
Perhaps I need a self-powered microphone?

Given that I can hear sounds through my speakers when the recording source is my
radio, shouldn't that create  / save a sound file?

Comment 7 Colin Walters 2004-07-26 17:34:14 UTC
I can reproduce this too.  I'm going to go ahead and consolidate this
with bug 100774, the general "gnome-sound-recorder is still busted" bug.

This bug was originally opened against RH9 - could people try against
the FC2 version, and followup to 100774?
