Description Philip Ashmore 2008-07-14 18:48:54 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008061712 Fedora/3.0-1.fc9 Firefox/3.0

Description of problem:
I've got two windows overlapping my KDE desktop as I'm writing this.
They both say
    The audio playback device ESS Maestro3 PCI (Maestro3) does not work.
    Falling back to PulseAudio.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I can't find it

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run preupgrade to upgrade from Fedora 8 to Fedora 9
2. Sort out the mess.
3. Install kde-settings-pulseaudio so you can hear sounds from notifications (the KDE startup and shutdown sounds work!).
4. Hibernate.

Actual Results:
The windows on my screen.

Expected Results:
Phonon (what ever package it comes from) should have determined that if it has a problem using a hardware device, then it might not be appropriate to switch to a sound server using that device (Maestro3 is the only sound device on my machine).

Additional info:

Fwiw, fedora should be defaulting to using pulseaudio everywhere (well, if you
have kde-settings-pulseaudio installed anyway).  If it doesn't, then that's a
bug we need to fix.

Using fallback backends is a phonon feature, but the (sometimes needless)
warnings seem a bit overkill to me too.

Is this still an issue to be concerned about?
