Description Jason Farrell 2008-11-17 10:06:42 EST
I know pulseaudio is supposed to be "glitch-free" in F10, but did anyone even *try* logging in to KDE4 even once?

The default startup & shutdown KDE sounds are still as choppy as they were in F9; the startup sound never even finishes skipping before being cut off. This leaves a bad taste in your mouth for KDE, even if subsequent audio playback in other apps is OK.

The Gnome startup sounds on the same F10 system are however glitch-free.

No love for KDE?

It's highly dependent on audio hardware and drivers (kernel).

So, what audio hw are you using?

rpm -q kernel
uname -a kernel

Comment 2 Jason Farrell 2008-11-17 10:35:37 EST
Using the very common Audigy card:
01:08.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB0400 Audigy2 Value

[root@nano ~]# lspci|grep audio ; rpm -q kernel ; uname -a
01:08.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB0400 Audigy2 Value

thanks, looks like a dup of bug #466314

If it is a dupe (audigy2 buffer underruns) then it's very odd that it's really only KDE syssounds with the bad skipping problem. pulseaudio is otherwise perfectly fine on my system.

Thanks Rex.

btw - why is kde-settings-pulseaudio-4.1-4.20081031svn.fc10.noarch installed if it contains no files or scripts? old dep? ... looks like nothing requires it, but it's still in the kde-desktop comps group.
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2008-11-17 11:27:24 EST
kde-settigs-pulseaudio is a metapackage with Requires to pull in all the necessary stuff to make PA work, including:

In the mean time, we've patched xine-lib ( in an attempt to workaround some of the pa-induced choppiness.
