Description Eric Smith 2004-08-22 20:39:18 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)

Description of problem:
gnome-sound-recorder is able to record, and the temporary file
containing the recording is visible in /tmp (e.g.,
/tmp/gsr-record-Untitled-12893.5EQjWV), but the Save and Save As
commands don't do anything.  The file the user selects via the file
chooser is not created, and gnome-sound-recorder still calls the
recording "Untitled".

This was reported by Phil Barnes in a comment on bug #100774, but is
almost certainly not related to the main bug reported there, thus I
have entered this as a separate bug.  Please do not close this as a
duplicate of 100774 without studying it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Open gnome-sound recorder
2.  Click the "record" button.
3.  Wait a bit
4.  Click the "stop" button.
5.  Click the "save as" button.
6.  Select a filename to save using the file chooser.


Actual Results:  No file created.  gnome-sound-record still calls the
recording "untitled".

Expected Results:  File user selected should be created.

Same here, after installing gstreamer-0.8.5-1 from rawhide.

Comment 2 Eric Smith 2004-08-26 07:01:13 UTC
The machine on which I observed this behavior had a fairly plain
install of FC2.  It did have gstreamer-0.8.3-2 installed, but nothing
from rawhide.

In case it matters, my system is a dual Athlon 1900+ (Asus A7M266-D)
with 1.25GB of RAM and an Audigy Platinum sound card, running

Comment 5 Eric Smith 2004-09-16 18:21:42 UTC
Colin, thanks ever so much for carefully reading my comments then
deciding to close 130617 as a duplicate anyhow.  :-(

The problem Phil Barnes and I experienced is NOT the crash described
in 100774.  In our case, the recording works fine, but is not saved. 
No crash occurs.

Comment 6 Colin Walters 2004-09-16 18:29:58 UTC
Look, there are a ton of varied bugs against gnome-volume-control,
many of which overlap.  There are too many for me to track
individually.  I am going to make a decision soon about whether to
simply remove it entirely for FC3.

If we decide to ship it, we can reopen this one and start examining
and forwarding issues upstream individually.
