Sound Devices Bugs

Reported by: GeeKen Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: System Configuration Version: 8.0-BETA
Keywords: Sound Cc: trac-bugs@…


Sometimes PC-BSD-8 can't find the Sound Systems "DevA",
on Boot. As a result, the sound system won't function.
This happens rarely but the developers should know
about it.

Also, as a separate Bug, KDE keeps asking to disregard
unused Sound Devices after Boot. If I answer "Yes" to this misleading question, the Sound system is
turned off permanently. This question should be able to
be answered "Yes" to without sound system cancellation.

This is not what it says on the tin and it is disruptive.

This system check needs to be thought through and rewritten. Just turning the sound system off is undesirable. Such a command should be the subject of prior user quizzing :

"Do you really want to disconnect the sound system ? "

This bug happens on about every second Boot.

I can second this. On my Thinkpad X301 works sometimes, sometimes not.

By fiddling around with hw.snd.default_unit it can be fixed.

These are really two separate issues. The sound driver not loading is an issue with the driver in FreeBSD itself. If you can find a way to duplicate it, I would recommend reporting it to the FreeBSD guys:

Ditto with the KDE sound system bug. First thing to do is re-test it on 8.1-RC1 to see if its fixed in KDE 4.4.4. If it is not, then report it over to the site.

FWIW, I don't see these problems on any of my systems here. The correct driver always inits properly, KDE is able to forget about old devices / apply new ones on the fly.
