Re: Pulse audio?

What happens if you create the directory /tmp/pulse-sundaram?  (This
isn't the solution but I think it led me to realize something -- My /tmp
is a tmpfs so I would have to be creating it in a startup script
everytime which isn't the case.)

# mkdir /tmp/pulse-sundaram
mkdir: cannot create directory `/tmp/pulse-sundaram': File exists
bash-3.1$ pulseaudio
main.c: WARNING: called SUID root, but not in group 'realtime'.
main.c: Failed to create '/tmp/pulse-sundaram': Operation not permitted

Are you running esd or artsd?  Maybe that's locking the device files or
the esd socket (so pulse can be compatible with all the esd consumers).

Yep. So I killed esd.

# pulseaudio
main.c: This program is not intended to be run as root (unless --system is specified).
module-gconf.c: Unable to read or parse data from client.
module.c: Failed to load module "module-gconf" (argument: ""): initialization failed.
main.c: Module load failed.

It gets struck here.

So then

# pulseaudio --system
main.c: Failed to find user 'pulse'.

Packages really should be reviewed for functionality too.
