Description Michael S. 2009-10-12 19:30:33 UTC
Description of problem:
paprefs do not load modules as it seeks the wrong modules directory

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

How reproducible:
each time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run paprefs
2. try to install any missing plugins

Actual results:
paprefs try to use  /usr/lib/pulse-0.9.16/modules/module-zeroconf-discover.so

Expected results:
paprefs should use /usr/lib/pulse-0.9.19/modules/module-zeroconf-discover.so

So i guess paprefs just requires a simple rebuild.

That was super-fast, thanks Lennart!

Comment 5 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2009-11-17 21:45:20 UTC
This is the same problem but with :
Actual results:
paprefs try to use  /usr/lib/pulse-0.9.19/modules/module-zeroconf-discover.so

Expected results:
paprefs should use /usr/lib/pulse-0.9.20/modules/module-zeroconf-discover.so

This problem is meant to be fixed at the rpm level if cannot be fixed at the code level. If you need to rebuild paprefs for the next pulseaudio please try to avoid such misbehaviour with an accurate rpm Requires on the pulseaudio version of the modules.

Comment 6 Paul W. Frields 2009-11-18 14:07:50 UTC
I think the idea is that PulseAudio uses a non-distro-specific method (e.g. PackageKit) to satisfy a user's request for an uninstalled module, rather than an erroneous Requires.  Perhaps this is done with a DBus message that PK understands as a request for a capability?  I haven't looked at the code so I don't know for sure.

In any case, it should probably be part of the package maintenance routine to rebuild all these bits together (chained?).

Comment 7 Aniket 2009-11-30 18:53:45 UTC
This problem has surfaced again. paprefs is trying to find modules in /usr/lib64/pulse-0.9.19 while they are in pulse-0.9.21 directory. 

This prevents me from enabling some of the options in paprefs to allow network access etc. As a temporary workaround I have created symlinks , but we need a longterm solution.

Comment 8 Paolo Patruno 2009-12-27 10:44:17 UTC
This problem is on again.
Now, to solve, paprefs just requires a simple rebuild.

Comment 9 Mark Williamson 2010-01-03 03:23:04 UTC
I'm seeing this bug too.

I had a /usr/lib64/pulse-0.9.19 and a /usr/lib64/pulse-0.9.21, whereas my 32-bit system had only the latter.  I made a symlink pulse-0.9.19 -> pulse-0.9.21 (moving the old directory away on the 64-bit system) and that made paprefs believe that I had the correct modules installed.

If paprefs packages depend on a specific version of the pulseaudio packages then perhaps a stricter dependency or packaging them together could help to avoid such mismatches?  Anyhow, I'm happy to have a workaround for the moment (and of course, PA worked fine when I wasn't trying to configure the more advanced preferences paprefs offers).

Bug again.  0.9.23 RPM, asking for 0.9.22 module-zeroconf-discover.  NOT FIXED.
