installed (or rater, upgraded to) ubuntu 9.04 beta yesterday… most things looks and feels very good, except for a few things. especially the crappy pulse audio. i had a completely fine audio setup, two soundcards, one integrated, on the motherboard, for gnome/desktop stuff, and a m-audio audiophile 2496 dedicated to jack and music work. but pulse audio messes up everything, deciding to use the m-audio for the desktop, hiding the on-board card, not letting me manually choose which card i want to use, and the mixer icon/appled has disappeared from the gnome panel, so i can’t even change the audio volume…
crap.. hopefully removing the premature, unfinished pulse audio crap won’t ruin something else…
but then again, i know this is a beta, and i should expect some glitches like this one, so, maybe (just maybe), i should try to get pulseaudio to work as intended first… we’ll see
it was quite simple to fix:
sudo apt-get remove pulseaudio sudo apt-get install esound
ignored the warning about removing ubuntu-desktop. it’s just a meta-package, and doesn’t remove anything..
phew! back to good, old, working alsa.
