Summary: pulseaudio-0.9.21PulseAudio-0.9.22

Version increment to 0.9.22

At a minimum:

./configure --prefix=/usr \
            --sysconfdir=/etc \
            --libexecdir=/usr/lib/pulse \
            --with-module-dir=/usr/lib/pulse/modules \

Additionally we could pass `alsaprofilesetsdir=/usr/share/pulse' to configure (or use a sed on src/ so that there is not a /usr/share/pulseaudio. I say this because by default there is


Changing the /usr/share name provides consistency.

should be passed to configure else the udev rules end up in /usr/lib/udev/rules.d which should only be used by udev itself.

comment:5 by Randy McMurchy, 12 years ago

Please disregard the above comments as they are incomplete and erroneous. Following is what I hope are solid instructions:

First, if Linux-PAM is installed, add these two lines to /etc/security/limits.conf:

@audio   -  rtprio     99
@audio   -  memlock    unlimited

Next run a sed so that stuff ends up in /usr/share/pulse, instead of /usr/share/pulseaudio:

sed -i 's|pulseaudio/alsa-mixer|pulse/alsa-mixer|' src/

Now here is what should be a correct ./configure command:

./configure --prefix=/usr \
            --sysconfdir=/etc \
            --libexecdir=/usr/lib/pulse \
            --with-module-dir=/usr/lib/pulse/modules \
            --localstatedir=/var \

This ends up with the following directories and files created and used:

/usr/share/vala/vapi/libpulse.vapi (not sure what it is for)

Doxygen docs can be created via a Makefile, I'm not sure if the Makefile will install them.

Lastly, view for hints how to create a setup that will work with the users hardware and existing packages.

Is there a trick to creating the /var/... directories? I've tried various options during the build process and I cannot get 'make install' to create any localstatedir directories. Further to this, what are they used for? the system daemon? If so, the developers seem to discourage the use of it.
