Description Bruno Wolff III 2012-08-24 09:59:39 EDT
Description of problem:
I noticed last night that I wasn't getting any sound from my USB headset last light on a 3.6.0-0.rc3.git0.1 kernel. The device does show up properly in the sound preferences menu, but when I try to use xmms to play a song the song doesn't actually play. The progress bar stays put.

I tested some other kernels (on three different machines) and found that it didn't work on 3.6.0-0.rc2.git2.1 (on any machines), but that it did work with 3.6.0-0.rc2.git0.1, PAE-3.6.0-0.rc1.git0.2 and 3.6.0-0.rc2.git1.2. Motherboard sound did work on all three machines with the 3.6.0-0.rc3.git0.1 kernel.

This line from dmesg probably will give you more specific info on what the device is:
[   15.556115] hid-generic 0003:046D:0A0C.0006: input,hidraw5: USB HID v1.00 Device [Logitech Logitech USB Headset] on usb-0000:00:1d.7-6.4/input3
Comment 1 Bruno Wolff III 2012-08-24 13:15:38 EDT
3.6.0-0.rc3.git1.1 also doesn't work with the headset.
Comment 2 Josh Boyer 2012-08-24 13:59:00 EDT
OK, so if I read that correctly, the first broken version is 3.6.0-0.rc2.git2.1 and the last version that worked before that is 3.6.0-0.rc2.git1.2.

Can you attach the output of alsa-info.sh?

Also, can you verify with alsamixer that the headset isn't muted or turned down?

I didn't see any mute indicator in alsamixer. The display didn't seem to change when I muted and unmuted using the sound applet. The sound level showed 68. And showed the gain as -5 dB.

I've started a scratch build with:

reverted (via patch -R).  You'll find it here when it finishes building:

Comment 5 Bruno Wolff III 2012-08-25 11:04:25 EDT
I tested the scratch build and headset sound is working again on the two machines that I could easily test. (The third is at work.)
Comment 6 Josh Boyer 2012-08-29 17:23:52 EDT
There was an actual fix posted to the list which Bruno has tested.  We'll roll that patch into the next update.
Comment 7 Josh Boyer 2012-08-29 17:27:21 EDT
Patch committed to Fedora git.
Comment 8 Bruno Wolff III 2012-08-30 00:05:14 EDT
I tested 3.6.0-0.rc3.git3.2.fc18.i686.PAE on two systems at home and the logitech usb headsets are working on both machines again.
