gnome-volume-control crashes, sound partly broken [solved]
 
I have read that a lot of people are having problems with their sound using gnome. until recently I never had any issues, until I was forced to reinstall gentoo.
now, sound basicly works, I can use gxine, beepmediaplayer, alsaplayer, and the alsamixer, but as soon as i try to run applications that were 'bundeld' with the gnome-ebuild, I run into problems.
For instance, everytime gnome loads, "gnome-volume-control" crashes, displaying following message:
Code:

No volume control elements and/or devices found.
running it from a console reveals:
Code:

the sound recorder also fails to run, same goes for cdjuicer and everything else, that was compiled together with gnome, except the games. Gnometris works perfectly and with sound.
any ideas? :confused:

no, but I will recompile gnome and see if it helps

hungrigerhaifisch 11-09-2005 02:42 PM

ok, I recompiled gnome and x which sadly did not resolv the problem,
I'm stuck :confused:

fixed
i was using gcc-hardened profile, had to switch to vanilla and recompile gstreamer+plugins, did the trick.
Gstreamer FiX

:D
