Why can't all of this audio crap have a 'service audio restart'? function?

Probably because there isn't a system-wide audio service. The
pulseaudio server usually runs in the user's desktop session.

Ok, so I add or remove a line in one of the /etc/pulse files. What do I have to kill and restart to make it re-read those config files and put the effect
into service?  Is a restart of X sufficient?

Right now, the only thing working is the kde sound effects. Any other source, like a new video with sound, is pure white noise at 120 db above the kde sound effects. Since I like to tour the news sites of an evening, I'll remove what
I installed and reboot in about an hour if no helpful advice seems to be
forthcoming.

Also, I tried to join the pulse mailing list, but FF had a whole cow over the https certificate, and I have never seen such a strong warning from FF before
so I didn't ok it.  Could someone advise Lennert that his sites ssh
certificate is dead or compromised?

Thanks Joonas.

Cheers, Gene

You'd think if Linux and Fedora were so hot and wonderful there would be a
system wide audio service that actually worked from consoles as well as
from X. I need both to work to make my setup function correctly. So I am
stuck, crippled. That does not seem to be a problem in Windows with
multiple sessions as with Windows Server editions.
