     204        There are system wide configuration files:

     207        <filename>/etc/pulse/default.pa</filename>, and user configuration

     210        configuration files take precedence over system wide ones.

     235      <para>
     236        The default configuration files allow to set up a working installation,
     237        except that you need to remove a reference to Console-Kit if it is
     238        not installed. For example, issue the following command as the
     239        <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user:

     244
     245      <para>
     246        You may also have to configure the audio system. You may start
     247        <application>pulseaudio</application> in command line mode using
     248        <command>pulseaudio -C</command>. You can then list various
     249        informations and change some settings. See
     250        <command>man pulse-cli-syntax</command>.
