Description Chris Ricker 2003-02-20 04:40:41 UTC
With beta5, I get:

Warning: this version of the Gnome Volume Control was compiled with OSS version
3.8.2, and your system is running version 16502.188.158.

when running gnome-volume-control

I don't recall seeing this in beta4 or previous....

Still there?

Looks like some kind of silly number-parsing bug or something.

Comment 2 Chris Ricker 2003-08-06 21:12:34 UTC
I don't have a severn box handy, but on a fully up2date RHL 9 I get:

[cricker@yoshimi mp3s]$ gnome-volume-control 
Warning: This version of the Gnome Volume Control was compiled with
OSS version 3.8.2, and your system is running
version 19896.236.158.

From the strace, it looks like it's trying to grovel /dev/{,sound/}mixer1, which
doesn't exist. First it pokes /dev/mixer for some info:

13281 open("/dev/mixer", O_RDWR)        = 16
13281 ioctl(16, OSS_GETVERSION, 0xbfffe0bc) = 0
13281 ioctl(16, SOUND_OLD_MIXER_INFO, 0x805a1bc) = 0

then it pokes mixer1, fails, and warns

13281 open("/dev/mixer1", O_RDWR)       = -1 ENODEV (No such device)
13281 open("/dev/mixer1", O_RDWR)       = -1 ENODEV (No such device)
13281 open("/dev/sound/mixer1", O_RDWR) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
13281 ioctl(-1, OSS_GETVERSION, 0xbfffe0bc) = -1 EBADF (Bad file descriptor)
13281 write(2, "Warning: This version of the Gno"..., 137) = 137
13281 ioctl(-1, SOUND_OLD_MIXER_INFO, 0x8086f54) = -1 EBADF (Bad file descriptor)


That's with gnome-media-2.2.1.1-4

Ugh, looks like pretty dorky code.

Should be easy to fix though, just handle that error properly.

Comment 5 Colin Walters 2004-07-26 17:23:45 UTC
Looks fine to me now, closing.
