1 Hi,
3 I got two problems, which have to do woth "sound" ... more or less.
5 First one: The vivaldi browser does not produce any audio...
6 The Vivaldi support page says (for Ubuntu) one had to install a
7 certain ffmpeg package, which is - namewise - related to chromium.
9 Since there is a USE flag "chromium" for ffmeg, I installed this:

25 but with no success.
27 I use alsa and jackd - no pulseaudio and such.
29 Searching for "gentoo vivaldi no sound" gave my a couple of links,
30 which all mention the ubuntu package mentioned above.
32 What can I do Gentoo-like to enable audio with Vivaldi ?
34 Second problem is a little spooky:
35 (Previously this has worked without problems...)
37 When I start qjackctrl, the mouse buttons and keyboard get disabled.
38 Caps-Lock still switches the LED and the cursor is still moving.
40 I have installed this:
41 [I] media-sound/qjackctl
42 Available versions: 0.4.5 {alsa dbus debug portaudio}
43 Installed versions: 0.4.5(12:12:35 PM 03/11/2018)(alsa -dbus -debug -portaudio)

47 I tried enableing dbus but a successfull recompilation the problem is
48 still the same.
50 Any idea, what's going on feels like starting firefox
51 switches of my TV....
53 Thank you very much in advance for any help!
54 Cheers
