Subject: [gentoo-user] Gnome without PulseAudio?
Date: Wed, 11 Apr 2012 02:31:47
1 Hi there!
3 Recently, PulseAudio got installed. Seems like gnome-settings-daemon
4 version 3 no longer has the pulseaudio use flag, so it wants pulseaudio,
5 which needs alsa-plugins built with the pulseaudio use flag. I wouldn't
6 mind using PulseAudio, but ist starts automatically when I play movies,
7 and I get no sound output in mplayer or VLC. And there are weird side
8 effects, sometimes playback stops, I have to make it run again by
9 skipping back and forward. Sometimes videos play much faster than normal.
11 So I would like to get rid of it. Is this possible? I don't really use
12 Gnome, but I like to have it to see how it develops. And I wouldn't like
13 to remove it just because of a sound problem.
15 Maybe the PulseAudio problem is the same as I had with ALSA, I have two
16 internal cards, and I had to tell ALSA not to prefer the SPDIF one.
17 Maybe I have to do the same with PulseAudio, but I do not know how. And
18 the weird playback effects are spooky, I'd prefer to keep things as they
19 are, at the moment I'm happy with plain ALSA.
21 And what is starting the pulseaudio process? I can kill it, but it comes
22 back the next time I run mplayer. Is there a way to just disable it?
