Description Jan Willies 2011-09-14 11:21:57 UTC
Description of problem:paprefs wants to install pulseaudio-0.9.22 modules, although 0.9.23 is installed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):paprefs-0.9.9-8.fc15.x86_64

How reproducible:always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.launch paprefs
2.try to install airtunes or zeroconf-discover via the gui
Actual results:it wants pulseaudio 0.9.22 stuff

Expected results:it should use pulseaudio 0.9.23 stuff, which is already installed (zeroconf-discover, etc)

Additional info:

I confirm this. Paprefs gui points to 0.9.22 modules (not available in repos. And therefore pulseaudio downgrade as temporary fix also not possible) and running of pulseaudio (net)server fails. This needs to be fixed.

Comment 2 Timo Sorvoja 2011-10-20 02:42:50 UTC
Temporary fix:

1. "yum install pulseaudio-module-zeroconf -y"
2. "cd /usr/lib"
3. "ln -s pulse-0.9.23 pulse-0.9.22"
4. Restart paprefs if already started. Then try to enable airtune etc...

If fails because of missing modules then check what files provides needed modules by hand (e.g. "yum whatprovides module-zeroconf-publish.so") and install the with yum. This solution works for me.

Comment 5 Rudd-O DragonFear 2011-11-28 21:50:00 UTC
Why is it so difficult to make the package dynamically look up the file based on provides and requires rather than a hardcoded path?  That way at least it won't need to be rebuilt EVERY TIME (and it would eliminate another QA pain point).

paprefs knows (or at least in principle, can know) the version of pulseaudio it's connecting to.  let paprefs ask it (just like paman does), and use it to compose the path or whatever.  That oughta work.

Comment 6 Fedora Update System 2011-12-12 21:53:55 UTC

I try to use paprefs on a Fedora 16 updated machine and all the network buttons are disactivated. Rebuild the package do not solve.
