Description of problem:
Using the standard workstation installation of Red Hat Linux 8.0, on an Asus
P4PE motherboard with on board AD1980/Intel 82801DB sound, I get sound for
system events, and when I play WAV files, but I don't get any sound when I play
an audio CD using the Gnome CD player. The sounds that do work also do not come
out of the correct socket on the motherboard, they come out of the pink socket,
which should be for a microphone input. Running Windows XP on the same
hardware, the sound works fine, and the sound correctly comes out of the green
socket on the motherboard, which is the speaker output.
How can the microphone and speaker output sockets get mixed up under RH8.0
Linux?, and why don't I get any sound when playing audio CD's?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert audio CD
2.click play on Gnome CD player
3.Turn up all volume controls to max (on CD player and on volume control).
4. Listen for any sound.
Actual Results: CD plays, but no sound produced on any of the motherboard
Expected Results: Sound should have been produced on one of the motherboard
sound sockets (preferrably the green one - speaker output).
Don't mind if I butt in! I have a similar problem though on a different
system. My run integrated chip on Intel, intel810 chipset. This has problem
with kernel 2.4.18 and there are no sounds at all, there, but since I got new
got updated kernel to 2.4.20-8, I was able to hear sounds, but unable to play
CDs. codec97 and i810 work fine, volume set to unmute and everything. Wonder
what's wrong. Any help is appreciated.
See also bug #99484 perhaps...
Is this only with gnome-cd, or with any CD player (including KDE one,
workman, or whatever)
Can any of you still reproduce this problem? This is a really old bug :)
