Description Jerry Quinn 2003-01-09 11:34:19 EST
Description of problem:

[jlquinn@smaug jlquinn]$ sox -t ossdsp /dev/dsp junk.vorbis
sox: Sound card appears to only support 2 channels.  Overriding format

Channels: 2  Rate: 8000
Segmentation fault

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

Comment 1 Michael Lee Yohe 2003-01-09 16:08:18 EST
What kind of sound card is installed on the system?  Also, are you piping raw
Ogg/Vorbis encoded data into /dev/dsp? (I didn't know that sox supported
decoding Ogg/Vorbis encoded audio data).
Comment 2 Elliot Lee 2003-02-21 17:02:37 EST
sox defaults to a bitrate that vorbis can't handle, and then ignores the
resulting error.

Fixed in 12.17.3-10 by adding an error message.
