Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 471590
pulseaudio should require /usr/bin/pactl
Last modified: 2008-12-18 10:01:11 EST
Description of problem:
A packaging bug:
/usr/bin/start-pulseaudio-x11 (from package pulseaudio)
/usr/bin/pactl (from package pulseaudio-utils)
However, the pulseaudio package does not require pulseaudio-utils.
=> yum install pulseaudio
will miss to install pulseaudio-utils rsp. /usr/bin/pactl.
This will trigger the following error when launching X:
/usr/bin/start-pulseaudio-x11: line 26: /usr/bin/pactl: No such file or directory
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- Current rawhide
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum remove pulseaudio-utils
2. yum install pulseaudio
3. launch X
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Fixed in CVS, this will be part of the next version of the PA packages which I will upload shortly to F10 and rawhide.
