How did you setup 5.1? Does 5.1 output work in any other applications?
Did you expect Rhythmbox to upsample to 5.1 from stereo?

Right now, I don't think Rhythmbox has any sort of support for the outputs other
than stereo, and doesn't make provisions for others.

Even then, you're saying that it is a regression? What packages changed for you
to get that regression? How did it work before?

bugbuddy volume control crash txt

5.1 on Intelch5 on mmobo intel865GBF
It has always played since FC3. 

Attached another bugbuddy file on gome-volume-control.
While setting the properies I determined it was the chan DDL.
6 chan and 2 chan seem to be reversed. I set it to 2 chan and the 5.1 (6chan)
began to play, but the volume-contol app crashed.

So it may be gnome-volume-control with the problem.
Also note that the right click Preferrences on the Volume pannel icon do /NOT
have the conplete set of proporties for 5.1 (and semm to be only for a display
bubble on the pannel icon (needless bloat and unless info.)

If you think this is gnome-volume-cintrol feel free to rount it over to that

Could you please gather the backtrace with the debuginfo packages installed. See for more details.

After several updates and a few operational problems I was back in FC7.
I can not do the requested devl packages but I did get another crash on volume
control exit.

R/Box started where I last played , but the 5.1 was off again.
I changed chan 2 to chan 6 and it started playing in 5.1.
I think R?Box was updated since.
