pulseaudio is unable to access files in /dev/snd
Last modified: 2015-06-29 08:17:25 EDT
Description of problem:
pulseaudio is not able to access files in /dev/snd which prevents me from playing sound on my headset or speakers. The files are protected with 660 and group owned by audio. Changing the protection to 666 and restarting pulseaudio allows me to get sound.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
local sessions are supposed to be granted permission to local devices via systemd-login1 (and friends). nothing to do with pulseaudio really.
list your current session? (related, how did you login? gdm/kdm/lightdm or other?)
I don't seem to have systemd-loginctl in my path. Is that the correct name?
I use kdm to login, but it has been having problems. It doesn't work on boot, so I have been restarting it from a vt. Then I login to xfce.
Maybe it's just loginctl now?
[root@bruno bruno]# loginctl
SESSION UID USER SEAT
2 513 bruno seat0
1 sessions listed.
Oh, ok, neat, well they should both be there:
$ rpm -q -f /usr/bin/loginctl /usr/bin/systemd-loginctl
[root@bruno bruno]# rpm -q systemd
[root@bruno bruno]# rpm -qf /usr/bin/loginctl /usr/bin/systemd-loginctl
error: file /usr/bin/systemd-loginctl: No such file or directory
It looks like it might have been renamed in the rawhide version of systemd.
Tonight I had kdm start up normally during boot and the sound wasn't messed up. Perhaps the sound issue is related to restarting kdm from a VT?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 20 development cycle.
Changing version to '20'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
