Kinda like Pulse Audio, NetworkManager, etcI fear that will be a very long wait ... Actually, NM has been getting slowly but steadily better on my machines. It would have been very foolish to have waited. (But I still don't like NM's "works like magic" approach.) Sound remains a complete mystery to me. As far as I can make out, pulseaudio is one of several "developments" that were intended to make the sound setup simpler, but which in fact have added another layer of obfuscation to an already confused mess. Too many cooks spoil the broth?
Pulseaudio is supposed to allow you to set the volume level(s) of various applications/output devices so that they can be different. Music soft. Ta-Ta! loud. As well as others. What is not so functional is the applications that are not yet able to mix with pulseaudio.
I can;t speak about NM. I don't need or use it. I know some that do use it and they do not have problems. I read of problems here though. Which, to me, sounds like hardware support problems.
