Description Rafał Mużyło 2007-12-23 20:34:14 UTC
Regarding 1.4.4 (probably whole 1.4 series)
At first I thought it was a problem with flac plugin, but it seems it's actually pulseaudio related.
As long as I played an Audio CD everything seemed fine, but when I tried to play a flac file, problems appeared. However when I tried a mp3 file similar problem appeared.
The problem:
1. when audio is set to pulse output, playback repeatly stops and starts again
2. when audio is set to alsa output (through pulse alsa plugin) playback in each file is fine, but when it reaches end of the file, it does not advance to the next one (audtool playback-status reports playing whole time) - with pulse output this does not happen, when end of file is reached, it advances correctly
Comment 1 Tony Vroon gentoo-dev 2007-12-23 21:56:22 UTC
This bug report is incomplete. I am missing:
1) emerge --info
2) emerge -pv audacious audacious-plugins
3) audacious --no-log &> audacious.runlog.txt

Finally, audacious log, really helpful, ain't it ?
Comment 4 Rafał Mużyło 2007-12-23 22:34:29 UTC
Thing that actually might be helpful:
media-sound/pulseaudio-0.9.8-r2
Comment 5 Tony Vroon gentoo-dev 2007-12-23 22:52:28 UTC
You still haven't provided:
2) emerge -pv audacious audacious-plugins

Your LDFLAGS are cause for concern, compile at least the audacious core, plugins & pulseaudio without them.
Comment 6 Rafał Mużyło 2007-12-23 23:22:04 UTC
I did, you just missed it:
audacious: 1.4.4; plugins: 1.4.2
And LDFLAGS should not be a problem:
-Wl,-O1 -Wl,--sort-common -Wl,-z,relro are considered safe (relro is a default for hardened, I think)
and while -Wl,--as-needed does cause problems sometimes, they are mainly linking problems, and ldd -r would discover them.
Comment 7 Tony Vroon gentoo-dev 2007-12-23 23:24:12 UTC
Bug reporter is unable to provide requested information and unwilling to try without unsupported LDFLAGS. I will be unable to assist.
Comment 8 Rafał Mużyło 2007-12-24 00:17:56 UTC
Listen, I may try reemerging it tomorrow.
But I'm almost 100% that you are wrong.
I've got dozens of packages with those flags (nearly all)
AudioCDs work regardless of output type
flac123 that uses libao, which is setup to use pulseaudio plays those files correctly
What's more, if LDFLAGS were actually the problem, then I think there would be errors while loading the plugins
While I had a few of as-needed bugs, most of them were easily solved (in most cases by myself) and they were either failing to link during compile or were detected by ldd -r
If it was a linking problem those plugins would probably not be loaded at all and as  I said they DO work, but with issues.
(If I had to guess, I'd say that pulse output maybe some thread locking issue, don't know about alsa, though.)
Comment 9 Tony Vroon gentoo-dev 2007-12-24 01:14:02 UTC
Feel free to report the issue upstream if you do not agree with me.
