Angry Kaffeine - Audio output unavailable


When I try to view DVB television through Kaffeine I see the picture but sound is missing. Eventually, a message box is displayed which says:-
xine Message - Kaffeine player
Audio Output unavailable. Device is busy ().

I am running Fedora 11 x86-64 on a generic PC with a Gigabyte MB running an AMD Athlon X2 CPU, Audio is either SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) on the MB, or RV630/M76 Audio device on a Radeon HD 2600 PCI card.

This worked fine on Fedora 10, but on Fedora 11 I cannot get this working. Any hints as to where I should look to re-configure?

mollcons, try to reconfigure your sound cards with alsaconf.
By the way, for other types of media, does the sound work?

Where do I find alsaconf. The only references to alsaconf that I can find on my filesystem are for Vim72. I don't think these are relavent. Or am I wrong?

In case you have already read the above response, I have now apparently fixed the problem. I discovered the Advanced Volume Control Applet in the System/Preferences menu, and having the HDA ATI SB option I found that the Line In sound was muted. Now this is unmuted, sound has magically reappeared in Kaffeine at least.

mollcons, congrats
Anyway, if you would need someday to use alsaconf, it's in alsa-utils package. It's a teminal program that allows you to configure your soundcards.
PS: If your problem is solved, mark the thread as "solved" from the "thread tools" menu
