#3097, "Kino crashes when sound enabled"


          

I installed Fedora 8. After some work, all multimedia applications appeared to have sound.

I installed Kino 1.1.1, loaded a dv clip from my camcorder and clicked Play. Kino died. I repeated the process in the shell and got the following error message:

kino: pcm_params.c:2351: sndrv_pcm_hw_params: Assertion `err >= 0' failed.
Aborted

I then tried Kino with the audio disabled and it worked perfectly.
The Audio Device is default.

I have not found anyone else with this problem and I can't find which package contains pcm_params.c.

Can you tell me what I need to do to get Kino to play with audio on Fedora 8?

Thanks

There are a few applications that have a problem with the new pulseaudio subsystem in Fedora 8. I tracked it down to a bug in ALSA, but I do not have the link handy. The workaround for now is to use Kino's OSS output by choosing Edit > Preferences > Audio. Then enter "/dev/dsp" in the Audio Device field.

Thank you. I had tried the /dev/dsp when I discovered that the problem was sound but I got a regularly occurring pop in the audio and did not try it again. However, after trying it this time, the sound is great. I cannot think of anything that I did but update the kernel twice.

But thank you again!
