Help Repair Pulse Audio Installation Please

In a misguided attempt to get XBMC to run (it crashes immediately after starting,) I uninstalled pulseaudio.

Sadly this failed to cure the XBMC problem but when I uninstalled pulseaudio a list of dependencies were uninstalled as well. In my ignorance I failed to record this list. I now want to restore my system so that I have sound once more. Is there a log file somewhere which will show what was removed so I can reinstate please?

I would suggest to try to read the sticky notes which will help you with your sound problems. If not post the info required and someone will help you. to reinstall pulseaudio you just need to go in YAST and reinstall it, it will add all dependent packages it needs.

Let me say that first and formost to anyone that reads this message, you can just disable PulseAudio when trying other fixes, it works the same and if you have remorse over the disable, you can reverse course and just re-enable PulseAudio again. Here are the two terminal commands you can use.

sudo setup-pulseaudio --disable

AND

sudo setup-pulseaudio --enable

I have a bash script that includes these command:

I suggest everyone read through this before you do anything to PulseAudio:

Here are the files I find in YaST for Pulse:

If you can’t get going, I would just reload, keeping my /home partition intact (not formatting) and start over again.

Thank You,

I use GTK version of YaST. Whatever packages i remove or add from zypper or YaST,YaST always stores the history and it can be retrieved and by double clicking on packages i can install the removed packages

Many thanks. Unfortunately I too assumed that if I re-installed pulseaudio the dependencies would also be re-installed. This, I find is only partially true because the machine specifics determined during the install are not simple dependencies and are not reinstalled automatically.
I am aware of the stickies thanks. What I wanted was a log which gave the files uninstalled because all was working well before I messed up.

Brilliant and thanks. Exactly what I needed.
Thanks again.

Also, there is a log file of what was installed/uninstalled at
“/var/log/zypp/history”.
