[harry@nb-rhsoft:~]$ pulseaudio -vv
pulseaudio: pulsecore/mutex-posix.c:98: pa_mutex_unlock: Zusicherung
»pthread_mutex_unlock(&m->mutex) == 0« nicht erfüllt.

This i have found, but the libtool seems to be right

[harry@nb-rhsoft:~]$ rpm -qa | grep libtool

Upgrade your libltdl please, it is broken.
Comment 2 Reindl Harald 2008-02-16 12:49:37 EST
Sorry but how to do this?
"yum search libltdl" does nothing find and i do not know what you mean
Comment 3 Reindl Harald 2008-09-08 21:09:25 EDT
I reopen this again
After upgrading to Fedora 9 on this machine its the same

[harry@nb-rhsoft:~]$ pulseaudio -D
E: mutex-posix.c: Assertion 'pthread_mutex_unlock(&m->mutex) == 0' failed at pulsecore/mutex-posix.c:98, function pa_mutex_unlock(). Aborting.

I have before also remove the following packages "pulseaudio pulseaudio-libs pulseaudio-core-libs SDL SDL_ttf SDL_image SDL_gfx SDL_mixer libao", searched all configurations, killed it manually and killed all which can belong to pulseaudio.

This machine (notebook) was FC5 and upgraded to FC6, F7, F8 and F9 and i never got pulseaudio running here. On a fresh install (x86_64 desktop-machine/homeserver) it works, but there i get no system-wide instance (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=461546) -> pulseaudio will make me crazy sooner or later :-)

If i have misunderstood "Upgrade your libltdl please, it is broken." please let me know, packages should after some months and a dist-upgrade are all new and i do not know what can i try 

[harry@nb-rhsoft:~]$ rpm -qa | grep ltdl

[harry@nb-rhsoft:~]$ rpm -qa | grep pulse

[harry@nb-rhsoft:~]$ sudo package-cleanup --problems
