Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 806218
alsa-plugins NVR in F17 is lower then in F16
Last modified: 2016-11-30 19:30:39 EST
Fedora 16 has alsa-plugins-pulseaudio-1.0.25-3.fc16, Fedora 17 has 1.0.25-1.fc17. So the package didn't update during upgrade from F16 to F17. This results into inability to play some sounds (youtube - both flash and html5).
Log from browser contains this:
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1018:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
Manual "downgrade" (yum distro-sync alsa-plugins-pulseaudio) to 1.0.25-1.fc17 fixes the issue.
Please rebuild the package with higher release number, so it will get upgraded automatically. Thank you.
alsa-plugins-1.0.25-3.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 17 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing alsa-plugins-1.0.25-3.fc17'
as soon as you are able to.
