Description Ralf Corsepius 2008-11-14 09:55:51 EST
Description of problem:

A packaging bug:

/usr/bin/start-pulseaudio-x11 (from package pulseaudio)
unconditionally uses 
/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
- pulseaudio-0.9.13-6.fc10.i386
- pulseaudio-utils-0.9.13-6.fc10.i386

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum remove pulseaudio-utils
2. yum install pulseaudio
3. launch X
Actual results:

Expected results:

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

Fixed in CVS, this will be part of the next version of the PA packages which I will upload shortly to F10 and rawhide.
