Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 400951
Pulseaudio forgets default device between reboots
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:24 EST
Description of problem:
Pulseaudio never remembers which audio device I set as default. I have a PCI
audio card and a USB headset. Both work fine and as expected and I'm able to set
either as the default device via the PulseAudio Volume Control and the sound
comes out where I expect. After I reboot though, the headset is always selected
as the default device, regardless of which device was set as default when I
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have 2 devices available to pulseaudio
2. Change the default device
The default device always reverts back to whichever device it considers to be
the default (in my case, the usb headset)
The default device should still be set to whatever I made it, in my case I would
prefer the PCI card.
This is a know bug and has been fixed in PA 0.9.8, which is available in Rawhide.
A simple fix is to run "mkdir ~/.pulse" manually.
I will push 0.9.8 into F8 eventually when it has stabilized a bit in Rawhide.
