I have a question maybe someone can help me out here.
Installed opensuse 13.1 from the dvd.
everything works fine but only pavucontrol give me a segfault, while starting normally(clicking icon from menu), and starting up from command-line.
Its a straightforward install, packages are all installed (so far i know), and packman is added and did an update wit zypper up/dup.
Indeed same thing happening on my acer 5315, works fine with 12.3, 13.1 runs fine but gives strange faults, reinstalling, changing user permits, even reinstalling with tarball gives no solution, all packages are fine, repos are fine.
Strange, also volume % in Kmix doesn’t stay the way it should, every reboot %=0, and sound isn’t enabled.
Did give pulse audio the -D argument, but it isn’t running.
Was getting tiered of pulseaudio so…
I did uninstall everything that has to do wit pulse, removed the folders under user, installed alsa, and guess what?
Kmix behaves normally, % of the volume stayed the way i like it, and amarok is playing nice with his own equalizer.
Hardware is also recognized the way it should now; (HDA intel ALC 268) .
I was missing paprefs and pulseaudio-module-gconf from your list. I installed them, which pulled in libgconfmm-2_6-1, libglademm, libglademm-2_4-1, libgtkmm-2_4-1, and paprefs-lang. However, there was no change in pavucontrol. It still gives the segmentation fault.
I have all of the files listed plus a few more, jack plugin, etc, and pavucontrol still crashes. In fairness my experience with 13.1 is mostly what I expected and I prefer opensuse over any other distribution. Things that went wrong:
no nvidia drivers in repositories yet - fixed by installing drivers from nvidia’s web page
created new repositories for multimedia
skype is broken with the new pulse audio, there is a fix that i found, opening skype from a terminal with PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=60 skype, the downside is that I can make only one call and i have to shut down skype and start it again for another call
Aside from those things and pavucontrol everything is working very nicely and i look forward to the fixes when they come along
There was no “fix for 13.1 32-bit KDE pulseaudio” (there isn’t anything like KDE pulseaudio anyway… ).
It was a “fix” for pulseaudio in general, so that pavucontrol (a Gtk application!) does not crash anymore, but that fix unfortunately caused other programs on 32bit systems to crash (including GNOME), because they are compiled against the older pulseaudio.
So, gnome folks, do not apply pulseaudio the update.
The update has already been removed from the update repo.
To get AF32 bluetooth headphones working in pavucontrol, I had to remove them from the bluetooth configuration and add (pair) them again. Before doing that, the headphones did not appear in pavucontrol, and sound went to the speakers. After removing and adding, the headphones were there to select, and they work.
I’m watching all the developments around the Pavu Control segment fault for over a month. Although the Index of /repositories/home:/tiwai:/pa-fix-13.1/standard/i586 repository is a fix for the PulseAudio Pavu Control segmentation fault, in my case it causes a KDE conflict:: crash within KDE “Multimedia > Audio and Video Settings”.
Did anybody experienced this anomaly; any medicine for that?
