Re: No audio on F11 and pulseaudio questions

Installed F11 yesterday. Generally very impressed but I've got no
sound. I'm using an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 card and there's a bug
report which matches the symptoms I'm experiencing here:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=499435

In the comments, the reporter mentions that sound works when he stops
pulseaudio and runs through alsa. I'm struggling to do the same since
pulseaudio always restarts itself. I've tried "pulseaudio -k" and
"kill <pulse's PID>" but it always respawns. I had a look in
/etc/event.d to see if it's started in there and is set to respawn but
there's nothing there.

Any ideas on how I can kill pulse? I'd also ask if anyone's got ideas
about how to fix the lack of sound, but it looks like a bug that
others are also experiencing.

Try installing the advanced mixer, which is called (IIRC) gst-mixer. Turn on unlikely things, don't expect it to be easy. And if you want PA to stop being a pain in the bit, "yum erase PulseAudio" or similar.

Audio seems really sick, my laptop audacity shows my microphone as being a mono left channel, fc10 booted on same hardware from another partition records in stereo. Someone in chat told me that "advanced error detection" in fc11 is disabling the right channel, and I have a hardware problem. My personal error detection tells me that's crap. ;-)
