Description Julian Sikorski 2008-05-25 04:35:56 EDT
Description of problem:
Despite the fact that the updated PulseAudio driver (bug #439847) has been
merged to SDL, the hack (bug #343911) still directs to esd in case
alsa-plugins-pulseaudio is installed. This should either be changed to direct to
pulse, or even better the audio driver preference should be changed so that
pulse driver is preferred to alsa. The reason for the latter is that one may run
pulseaudio without alsa-plugins-pulseaudio installed. Currently, in such
situation there are two possibilities:
1. If the audio device is free, SDL uses alsa directly
2. If it is not, it uses the SDL driver
As you can see, the pulseaudio driver is never used.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-07-20 22:47:35 EDT

On Fedora, both of the main desktops (and XFce too?) starts pulseaudio by
default, so yes, changing the override to pulse would be the minimal solution.
Would be nice to get it in before the Fedora 10 alpha freeze.
