pulseaudio - A featureful, general-purpose sound server

PulseAudio, previously known as Polypaudio, is a sound server for POSIX and WIN32 systems. It is a drop in replacement for the ESD sound server with much better latency, mixing/re-sampling quality and overall architecture.
These are some of PulseAudio's features:
  • High quality software mixing of multiple audio streams with support for more than one sink/source. May be used to combine multiple sound cards into one (with sample rate adjustment).
  • Wide range of supported client libraries. ESD, ALSA, oss, libao and GStreamer client applications are supported as-is. Native PulseAudio plug-ins are also available for xmms and mplayer.
  • Good low latency behaviour and very accurate latency measurement for playback and recording. Ability to fully synchronize multiple playback streams.
  • Network transparency, allowing an application to play back or record audio on a different machine than the one it is running on.
  • Extensible plug-in architecture with plug-ins for jackd, multicast-rtp lirc and avahi, just to name a few.
This package contains the daemon and basic module set.

  • Update pulseaudio-gdm-hooks.tmpfiles to use the same ownership and permissions as in specfile for pulseaudio files.
  • Update default.pa-for-gdm to not load bluetooth support in pulseaudio gdm instance. This ensure headset are not stolen by gdm instance instead of user instance. Idea from ArchLinux.
