Re: pulseaudio deeply unreliable (Fedora 10)



Around 08:31pm on Saturday, March 07, 2009 (UK time), Nigel Henry scrawled:

Thanks for this.  Having put up with stuttering sound on the PC I use to
play music on, I made the changes you suggested and that has sorted it.

For completeness I had to do the following:

# yum remove alsa-plugins-pulseaudio

Set sound to use ALSA.

$ gnome-sound-properties

Set Sound playback: under Sound Events, Music and Movies, and Audio
Conferencing to ALSA - Advanced Linux Sound Architecture.

$ gnome-volume-control

Under Preferences, select PCM. Change PCM's volume to an appropriate
level. 

This was for a SB Audigy soundcard.

This is a relatively low-spec machine - 1Ghz CPU and only 896Mb RAM,
but music performance was fine prior to this and is now fine again under
ALSA.  I will continue to use pulseaudio on my other machines, and will
give it further chances under future distros.
