Hello all,
I just wanted to know, if anyone has had succeeded in using skype v1.4 or v2.0beta with pulseaudio, and if yes how!
Because I had lotsa troubles with skype and pulse, rest all was working fine(mplayer,xine etc) . So I have disabled pulse currently, but i wanna use desperately coz i need to switch between snd cards frequently( BT headset and Onboard soundcard) , so pulse Is what I need !!!

For anybody having problems with sound in VLC, make sure /usr/lib/pulse-0.9/modules/module-esound-sink.so is displayed in Settings>Preferences>Audio>Output Modules>EsounD>Esound server

I do have PulseAudio working fine for me. When installing FC4 - FC8 I believe I had to set my group to also belong to sound(PulseAudio in FC8). Here's my id:
uid=500(Cable_txg) gid=500(Cable_txg) groups=100(users),495(pulse-access),497(pulse),500(Cable_txg) context=system_u:system_r:unconfined_t:s0

Also from System->Administration->Users and Groups click on properties for any user name and under "Groups" tab, click on pulse and pulse-access to include user in that group.

Hope that works....

Fedora 8 pulse audio as a system-wide daemon

For anybody trying to get Fedora 8 to run as a system-wide deamon as opposed to only starting up when someone logs into an X-server (ex: I'm setting up my machine as a headless jukebox, so I want to be able to ssh into it and start a song using mpg/ogg123 on the command line) here was the last crucial step for me. I'm sure this somehow bad for security but at least it works.

Go into /etc/pulse/default.pa and comment out the line
load-module module-x11-publish.

After doing this I was able to successfully run the following command as root:

# pulseaudio --system -D

Good luck!

i have this problem with sound->in general pulseaudio plays sound fine. but after some reboots i hear no sound and when i run alsamixer in terminal it says pulseaudio:connection refused. the only solution i found was either remove alsa-plugins-pulseaudio or rm -rf /tmp/pulse-username as root ,pulseaudio -k and pulseaudio -D. so my question is -are these solutions real solutions or am i missing a simple trick ? i have consolekit and avahi-daemon running.

Console Kit is supposed to fix that since it is supposed to be giving you permissions.

The actual error comes from /tmp/pulse-username

Personally, I feel that even ALSA was an answer to a question no one asked, but, that's a rant for a different day. OSS worked with less effort.

Anyway, here is my experience. Firstly, sound has been broken for some people as non-root for awhile. The usual solution, leaving pulseaudio out of the equation, is to edit /etc/security/console.perms.d/50-whatever it's called, and add

<sound>=/dev/dsp* /dev/snd/*

Then, at the bottom add

<console> 0666 <sound> 0600 root

This fixes the non-root issue if pulseaudio isn't involved.

Thank you for posting this, it did the trick for me. I used to have to chown /dev/snd every time I booted.

For my issue (no sound in Nexuiz: crime). I found some great tips from the links on this page regarding sound:


for me, he was right, only -- system-config-soundcard just needed the box unchecked regarding alsa being non-hardware specific.

I think...

Anyway, sound is working now.
I'll be shooting you all soon in Nexuiz!

1>what is the output of /sbin/lspci -v|grep -i audio ?
2>try removing the alsa-plugins-pulseaudio ?
3>try removing the /tmp/pulse-<username> folder,then pulseaudio -D.
4>if all else fails try mounting tmpfs on /tmp ?

audio, mplayer, selinux messages

ok, so whether I set up pulseaudio or alsa I get no sound. One cannot be opened and the otherrefuses to connect.

SELinux message when attempting to watch online streaming video is

>The mplayer application attempted to load /usr/lib/codecs/drv4.so.6.0 which requires text relocation. This is a potential security problem. Most libraries do not need this permission. Libraries are sometimes coded incorrectly and request this permission.<

Seems trying to write to a file and execute it at the same time is a no-no, but this was supposedly corrected in kernels >2.6...

Anyone know about this?

Thanks for your time
