    Default Works good on Kubuntu 11.10 Beta 2

    Just installed Kubuntu Oneiric (installing over Chakra, which doesn't support PA) and Pulse Audio is working fine! I just checked and my microphone works. Also, Kubuntu provides a package for an alternative volume control called Veromix (which lets you set the volume of multiple programs). I still have KMix in the background so my volume knob (or rocker or whatever it is called) still works on my laptop.

    Seems like the decision to move to PulseAudio is working out... but I can't really find a reason to be able to control multiple streams of sound. I'm not going to have a song playing in Amarok while watching a YouTube video! So, what is the real world application of PA?

    You know a ton of pulseaudio bugs have been abandoned not because they have been fixed but because many of them realized just removing pulse fixed their issues and had little reason to continue being a guinea pig.

    Default My personal experience

    I've just compiled and installed PulseAudio 1.0 and now all applications hang for some seconds when trying to use sound, then they fail. They worked relatively fine with PulseAudio 0.9.23. Syslog contains a couple of cryptic error messages from PulseAudio, but they were there too when PulseAudio worked. Starting the PulseAudio daemon in foreground mode produces kilometers of debug output, but not a single message when an application tries to play audio and fails.
    I'm sure it's entirely my fault, but still I would be happier if "desktop Linux" hadn't abandoned the beauty of the KISS approach. End of rant, now back to understand what's gone wrong this time.

    Thanks for great explanation. At first I was also bitching PA for some problems with audio, but then I realized the problems lay somewhere else. PA guys did a wonderful job.

    Yes, it seems like Gentoo was already running a pre-release of 1.0, so the bump to 1.0 was very minor.

    Anyone experienced that one of the stereo channels is much louder with pulseaudio?

    Anyways I like pulseaudio alot. Everything just seems to work easier than before

    One thing I wonder about though is the audio delay when playing over network -- how god/bad is yours? Mine is like 5-10 seconds with wireless

    Oneiric uses 0.99.3 at the moment but as it isn't yet released, it may still get an update to 1.0.
