device manager module, kde autostart bits missing
Last modified: 2010-01-01 22:34:03 EST
From pa-0.9.21's spec:
it would appear the device-manager module is being purposely omitted. This is something we'll need for kde-4.4's phonon/pulseaudio integration to work better.
Thinking out loud here, I got it installed by hand, but it would appear we also need a way of getting this module loaded at runtime. Suggestions?
Maybe consider adding to /usr/bin/start-pulseaudio-x11 ?
Or use a separate autostart .desktop file?
The file is already there upstream, it's just being deleted along with the module:
Lennart, can you please ship these files in the Fedora package? You can put them into a pulseaudio-kde subpackage if you really don't want them in the main package.
ah, precisely. handles the module loading for us and everything. win.
I've got a spec/patch ready, updated summary to match.
OK, let's bikeshed a bit, either (for consistency with other modules):
naming is fine with me. Preferences? blue ?
or just stuff these bits in existing packages (preferable, I think, simpler)
For example, mandriva's pa packaging puts device-manager in the main pa package, and the kde-related autostart bits into module-x11.
ok, need this tested, made the rawhide commit as minimally intrusive as possible,

- module-device-manager, kde autostart bits missing (#541419)
Would like this to land back in F-12 soonish too (in time for kde-4.4), but I'd rather get an explicit ACK before touching that branch.
cooling talked us into shipping mandriva's patches with kde-4.3.4, any objections to building this asap for the 4.3.4 updates we're preparing for F-12 ?
hmm, what is the status of this? iirc you guys now did an upload that enables the modules?
frankly i have no idea of kde so i am fine with any upload that doesnt change anything for gnome... ;-)
OK, I'll take care of it, make sure it affects kde only. Thanks.
To be clear, I just added to previously ommitted-from-packaging kde-only bits back to pulseaudio-module-x11
