Description Nicolas Mailhot 2007-12-02 08:45:48 EST
As a normal user in fedora devel I have no sound in apps

Running pulseaudio manually I see it complains of me lacking rt priviledges, and
asks me to add myself to pulse-rt group or perform some policykit magic

I added myself to the pulse-rt group, and got sound, but normal users should not
have to bother about it. Please automate sound priviledges granting for dekstop

Hmm? PA does not require RT scheduling priviliges. If you enabled RT sched in
the configuration, then you also should make sure to allow PA to actually enable

However, by default PA does not use RT scheduling and works without any special

If it didn't work that way for you, than you hit some other bug.

I am closing this bug now as NOTABUG. Feel free to file another bug, if you have
trouble to use PA without RT scheduling.

Since I've done *zero* pulseaudio customization on my setup right now (I only
looked at it because my desktop suddenly lost sound), that means whatever
offending config setting has been shipped in rawhide and will hit others

seems to have went away with latest rawhide sync
