Comment 1 Jon Disnard 2013-09-20 17:17:36 EDT
I was able to get firefox to work by uninstalling all of pulseaudio.

NOTE this required using 'rpm -r --nodeps ...' to ignore dependencies, potentially causing instability for other software that links to the PA libraries.

Worth mentioning that in LXDE the pavucontrol program was also not working.
This indicates a problem with PA in this desktop spin on ARM.

Tested using Compulab Trimslice (tegra2).


I've got debug packages installed if a back-trace is desired?
Comment 2 Paul Whalen 2013-10-10 15:47:26 EDT
Resolved in Fedora 20 Beta TC2 for ARM.
Using:
pulseaudio-4.0-4.gita89ca.fc20.armv7hl
firefox-24.0-1.fc20.armv7hl

Closing this bug for now.
