Description Steve Grubb 2003-04-10 14:05:34 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
I just upgraded from 8.0 to 9. Under Gnome 2.2, I went into preferences | sound
and clicked on the sound events tab. I started playing each sound. When I got
down to New Mail & clicked, I got an error message saying the file doesn't exist
& then another message saying I should install gnome-audio. I clicked ok & the
whole session locked up. I was only able to get out of gnome by pressing
ctl-alt-backspace. I was then unable to log into gnome under that account. I
logged in by the root account, did a "touch /usr/share/sounds/phone.wav" and
then I was able to get in. I turned off sounds.





Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-audio-1.4.0-6

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.I went into preferences | sound and clicked on the sound events tab. 
2.Select New Mail and click on play.

    

Actual Results:  I got an error message saying the file doesn't exist & then
another message saying I should install gnome-audio. I clicked ok & the whole
session locked up. I was only able to get out of gnome by pressing
ctl-alt-backspace.

Expected Results:  Should have played a sound.

Additional info:

Shouldn't phone.wav be in the package? I'm listing this bug as "high" since
locking up the Gnome session is entirely unexpected and just too much
excitement. In my opinion, this is 2 bugs. 1 file is missing, 2 Gnome goes
unstable if the file is missing.

I filed this against 8.0 (for "question.wav" - which, BTW, is still missing as
well).  The bug was closed and I was told to install gnone-audio. See: 81298 and:

I think the lockup is really the serious problem here 
(all the sounds in gnome-audio are pretty bad anyhow)
Comment 3 Steve Grubb 2003-08-29 13:23:00 EDT
The lockup problem went away during a kernel upgrade. The motherboard was a via
KT400 with the onboard audio chip. The phone.wav file is still missing and gnome
still insists that I install gnome-audio. 

This is too simple of a problem not to fix. Just add the phone.wav file and put
it in rawhide. It's not like there's any coding.
