Hm, some people portend to that, so I guess I've to believe all of you.
But reading the audio lists, a lot of people also have trouble because
of pulseaudio. I don't have any trouble when using JACK with Suse 11.2,
but I can't use any media application that isn't able to use JACK (while
JACK is using ALSA), even direct usage of ALSA doesn't work. Only
applications that are able to use JACK do work.
For 64 Studio sessions there is no trouble, all media applications I'm
using have a working audio output.
Since some days I've got a Karmic installation, but I didn't test any
application with audio output until now, more exact it's openArtist and
there are scripts to turn pulseaudio on and off.
It might be, that pulseaudio isn't evil, but I'm not missing anything
when using 64 Studio without pulseaudio, so I can't see any need to use
Some people need to use flashplayer and JACK applications at the same
time, I guess it's possible when running 64 Studio, but not when running
a distro that needs pulseaudio.
At least I don't need audio for PornTube (I can live without it), but I
need audio to make music
. When using KDE this never was an issue, it
became an issue for me since I migrated to GNOME ... but only for other
Is there anything less good for 64 Studio, because it doesn't use
portaudio? In other words, do I miss that there is an advantage when
using pulseaudio for some usage?
Arts seems to be more compatible with JACK Linux audio needs ...
"artsshell -q terminate" is a simple command, I guess it isn't that easy
when using GNOME with pulseaudio ...
... but I never tested "autospawn = no".
Put your hand on your heart! Don't you prefer KDE
? I'm using GNOME
for a short time and used KDE in the past.
I'll test pulseaudio and JACK1 with Karmic, but I'll keep 64 Studio
stable, as my main system, without pulseaudio and using JACK2
IMO pulseaudio and because of some issues also JACK1 aren't underwritten
safe on my computer. YMMV
"It will play nicely along side jack in the near future" Ok
