Doc Type: Known Issue
Doc Text:
The ALSA plug-in is not supported in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Instead of the ALSA plug-in, use the pulseaudio plug-in. To enable it, use the --plugin rpdsnd option with the xfreerdp command without specifying which plug-in should be used; the pulseaudio plug-in will be used automatically in this case.
