Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: Sound redirection plugin expects that pulseaudio device is specified on commandline in some cases. Consequence: Freerdp might be terminated unexpectedly due to accessing uninitialized variable if pulseaudio device is not specified. Fix: The plugin checks whether device is specified with this fix. Result: No more crashes if pulseaudio device is not specified on commandline.

Comment 2 Ondrej Holy 2016-01-08 07:55:33 EST
There isn't problem with "latency", but with parsing of "pulse". See RHEL 7 Bug 1067543 for more details and possible workarounds. There is also link for upstream patch to fix parsing.

This is basically duplicate of Bug 988307 (RHEL 7) and Bug 988272 (RHEL 6), however previous solution was man page modification, but it is not sufficient obviously...
