Description of problem:
After a standard installation of the wine package group you don't have MIDI sound available.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install wine (yum install wine.i686).
2. Launch any MIDI application, e. g. Band-in-Box.
3. Start playback.
No hardware or software devices (e. g. when running Fluidsysnth) are present, no playback audible.
There should show up a choice of MIDI ports in the applications's MIDI tab, and there should be an audible playback.
MIDI in Fedora is running flawlessly, see attachment.
Workaround to make MIDI heard in wine:
- install the winealsa.drv (wine-alsa.i686 package)
- remove the winepulse.drv (wine-pulseaudio.i686)
mingw-wine-gecko-1.8-1.fc18, wine-mono-0.0.8-1.fc18, wine-1.5.16-1.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
mingw-wine-gecko-1.8-1.fc17, wine-mono-0.0.8-1.fc17, wine-1.5.16-1.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
wine-1.5.16-1.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
Package mingw-wine-gecko-1.8-1.fc18, wine-mono-0.0.8-1.fc18, wine-1.5.16-1.fc18:
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 18 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing mingw-wine-gecko-1.8-1.fc18 wine-mono-0.0.8-1.fc18 wine-1.5.16-1.fc18'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
I finally did the update as suggested in Comment 4 (with fc17 instead of fc18), and now MIDI in wine seems to work as expected, with software synth (fluidsynth) as well with the hardware ports of my soundcard.
mingw-wine-gecko-1.8-1.fc18, wine-mono-0.0.8-1.fc18, wine-1.5.16-1.fc18 has been pushed to the Fedora 18 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
