Question GSB 2.26 volume control


Hello,

I added the applet for volume control on the panel, and when I choose the option "Open volume control", I get a message saying "Waiting for sound system to repond". Is there anything wrong, is it a bug, or is there something I can do to fix this?

Thanks, cheers.

Found this in FreeBSD forum:

When I select the sound preferences option in Gnome, I get a message which says

Waiting for sound system to respond

which never goes away. I think I enabled something I shouldn't have in my ports options when I configured Gnome, but I can't figure out what. Anyone have any hints? This is on 7.2 with 7.2-RELEASE ports (Gnome 2.26.0).

--
For the record, I was told by the FreeBSD Gnome maintiner(s) on IRC that the PulseAudio package is broken in 7.2 and updating ports should fix it.

--
Maybe the same issue in GSB 2.26.2 port?

Ok, now here is another question. How do you update ports in 2.26.2?

Errrr... I dont know... Maybe from the sources?

But I tested a downgrade and... Its working right now!!

http://repository.slacky.eu/slackwar...eaudio/0.9.14/
http://repository.slacky.eu/slackwar...ibasyncns/0.7/

Download these and try it!!

Remember to configure /etc/asound.conf :
pcm.pulse {
type pulse
}
ctl.pulse {
type pulse
}
pcm.!default {
type pulse
}
ctl.!default {
type pulse
}

Luck!!

How do you downgrade? I added in slapt-getrc file the repository to the 12.2, but I dont know how to downgrade. When I try to uninstall pulseaudio, it removes about 700 packages. I dont want that. What do I do? Can you give me the commands?

Thanks
Cheers

Maybe you should use removepkg instead of slapt-get:
Code:
removepkg pulse-audio
and then install the package linked above with
Code:
installpkg pulseaudio-0.9.14-i686-1as.tgz

Euh, ok, I will try it. I tried with slapt-get and had to uninstall all these packages. Maybe with installpkg it will be different.

Thanks, I'll get back to you.

Hi!

pulse-audio starts working with those 2 packages downgraded.

Then gnome-volume-control did not work anymore!

I also downgraded these:
gnome-media-2.24.0.1-i486-1as
gst-pulse-0.9.7-i486-3as.tgz

Then gnome-volume-control started to work with an warning!

Then I downgraded this:
gst-plugins-good-0.10.11-i486-3as

Now The sound system is fine!

I used the same method above (removepkg and installpkg) and downloaded from the same repository cited before.

Good Luck!
