Thread: Should I use Pulse Audio?

    Default Should I use Pulse Audio?


    Running Suse 11.0 atm. When running a game or anything that uses sound,
    I get the usual error that the sound device is in use if I try to play
    music, video or anything else. Linux only likes to use one sound stream
    at a time. This can be pretty annoying sometimes.

    I am a bit leery of using Pulse Audio as people seem to have a lot of
    problems with it.

    Would PA solve my sound problems or make them worse?

    I'm not sure if you *should* use it or not but I had all kinds of
    problems getting my sound working correctly until I removed pulse
    audio.

    I doubt things will get worse but it may be challenging to get things
    to work properly with pulse audio, at least it was turning out that way
    for me.

    I am hoping I don't have similar problems when I make the move to 11.1
    in the near future.

    Another problem with only being able to use one sound device. How do I
    answer SkyPe calls if I'm playing music or a game? It sucks you can only
    do one thing at a time.

    Okay, installed PulseAudio. Followed the perfect setup. So far I can now
    play two things at once. Now, to get PA to allow me to use it's tools.

    Off to search for more answers.
