Description Marius Andreiana 2005-05-04 05:41:36 UTC
With alsa 1.0.9 in development repository and dmix enabled by default, there's
no need to require esd. gstreamer uses alsa by default and it works.

GNOME sound preferences capplet doesn't allow events sounds without
checking Sound server checkbox, I assume only because the UI design. Please
remove this option and control-center's depency of

(note that issues 1 and 2 from that email are solved now)

The playback code uses esd, so it needs to be running.

In F7, we should have pulse running, so the dependency wouldn't be on esound
anymore, but on Pulse directly.

Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2007-02-14 19:23:24 UTC
the dependency is actually on /usr/bin/esd nowadays, which is provided by 
either esound or pulseaudio-esound-compat

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 16:08:20 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here: to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2008-04-23 05:45:45 UTC
The dependency is gone nowadays
