Last modified: 2008-11-01 17:42:34 EDT
Description of problem:
pulseaudio deamon fails at the start of every KDE session
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
start KDE 3.5.9 session
My daily usecase :)
1.Start KDE session
Start KDE session and sound works
Could you please make a new package available in repos for Fedora 8?
I doubt just updating pulseaudio will magically fix what's going wrong for
Do you have kde-settings-pulseaudio pkg installed?
rpm -q kde-settings-pulseaudio
Hi Rex, I have installed that package:
ok, so pa still always fails on first attempt at starting, but succeeds on subsequent tries?
I don't know whether it fails to start...All I do is that first I kill it,
than I run it in daemon mode again..Probably it starts, but did not initialize the right way. I can't hear play/hear any sound til I do the "restart" of pa.
Amarok tells me that "Xine was not initialized.." (I got it in Slovak version...So it is not the right one..).
Please set "log-level=debug" in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf. Then log in and paste the syslog output of PA here.
I don't know what resolved the sitution, but few days I don't have problem with pulse audio.. I don't have to kill it and start the daemon mode again.
I did "log-level=debug" in /etc/pulse/daemon.con.
Here is "grep pulseaudio /var/log/messages"
