pulseaudio in fedora11


I've installed Fedora 11 x86_64 and have got some problems with sound.
There's no sound unless I specify a particular card in a particular application (eg. audacious - hw:0,0 mplayer hw:0,0) with alsa (not pulseaudio). For applications that don't let me explicitly specify a device (amarok, exaile) there's no sound.
I'd like to use Card 0 (an external usb card Tascam us122 - I created udev rules for it so it works fine with the above mentioned programs)

I kde settings (multimedia - selected tascam as a preferred device for everything and when I test it within the sound and configuration panel it works fine. When I test pulseaudio in the same configuration window there's no sound.
I opened pulseaudio manager and both tabs (server information and devices) mention only ice1712 module (which is my second card - but anyway it does not generate any sound through pulseaudio although the pulseaudio volume meter shows that something is being produced) In other words, both cards seem to work fine with alsa, however audiophile does not work through pulseaudio and appears to be the only card recognised by pulseaudio.

that's my /proc/asound/cards
Code:
0 [USX2Y          ]: USB US-X2Y - TASCAM US-X2Y
                      TASCAM US-X2Y (1604:8007 if 0 at 002/003)
 1 [M2496          ]: ICE1712 - M Audio Audiophile 24/96
                      M Audio Audiophile 24/96 at 0xec00, irq 18


That's my /etc/asound.conf

Code:
@hooks [
        {
                func load
                files [
                        "/etc/alsa/pulse-default.conf"
                ]
                errors false
        }
]

pcm.pulse {
    type pulse
}
ctl.pulse {
    type pulse
}
pcm.!default {
    type pulse
}
ctl.!default {
    type pulse
}
That's my /etc/asound.state
Code:
state.USX2Y {
        control {
        }
}
state.M2496 {
        control.1 {
                comment.access read
                comment.type INTEGER
                comment.count 1
                comment.range '0 - 255'
                iface PCM
                name 'IEC958 CS8427 Input Status'
                value 67
        }
        control.2 {
                comment.access read
                comment.type INTEGER
                comment.count 1
                comment.range '0 - 255'
                iface PCM
                name 'IEC958 CS8427 Error Status'
                value 0
        }
        control.3 {
                comment.access read
                comment.type IEC958
                comment.count 1
                iface PCM
                name 'IEC958 Playback Mask'
                value ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
        }
I know, the last value looks wrong. I haven't modified it though. At least, not manually.

I also installed flash-plugin 64 from the adobe website but cannot hear a sound. I assume that it's related to the original issue of pulseaudio (btw, I can't seem to find libflashsupport in the repos).

Any help on that? Any additional information? Thanks

I had the same problem here. Pulse audio was routed to the digital output on my SB sound card and I'm using an analog amplifier. Install pavucontrol (Volume Control for PulseAudio) with yum and in the tab [Configuration] choose the correct output for you. It worked for me. I hope for you too...

the sound has been a problem for many with fedora 11 , almost as many if not more than fedora 8 when pulse was first used . my solution , i have had on and off sound issues since f8 , was to uninstall pulse and use "kmix" for my volume control .
I am still missing system sounds , but working on that.

That's not the problem. I've got pavucontrol but it can only see the other card. I'll need to read more about pulseaudio config files to point it to the card I want.

That was my approach in F9/10. I always got rid of pulseaudio and relied entirely on alsa. This time I want to take advantage of pulseaudio

I'll keep digging.

You might try the pulseaudio mailing list for help. It is very developer oriented, so it may be difficult to get their attention with what they may consider a configuration problem.
