Description

http://freedesktop.org/software/pulseaudio/releases/

While this is a pre-release version, 5.0 can be expected soon. It's rather an important release, since it's the first one that brings BlueZ 5.x support. PulseAudio is currently the last package preventing BlueZ 5.x upgrade. GNOME Bluetooth, GNOME User Share, KDE's BlueDevil (none in the book, but can easily be installed if mentioned desktops are being targeted), NetworkManager can already use BlueZ 5.x out of the box with their latest versions. obex-data-server and Gvfs will need to use BlueZ 4.x compatibility library, but it seems to work as opposed to PulseAudio.

My proposed changes are in the attachment. Feel free to modify.

Note that someone needs to test that it's working fine with current default LFS/BLFS setup because I am unable to do so.

I will try to test an the update.

I will try to test and then update.

comment:4 by Armin K, 8 years ago

Nah, don't update to this version. It's just a placeholder for when 5.0 arrives, which should be shortly. I might not be arround or not have time when that happens though.

OK. I was trying to concatenate the ideas. And had decided to ask you about this, and your reply was premonitory :-). Thanks.

But will give it back to the book, so, in the right time anyone can take it.

Arch is testing 4.99.3 to ship as "stable".

comment:8 by Armin K, 8 years ago

Arch is already using BlueZ 5, and they were using PulseAudio snapshot before, so it mostly makes sense. BLFS has no real reason for that, BlueZ is still at version 4.

Armin, I see your patch was for 4.99. Just changing to 5.0, does it still apply?

comment:13 by Fernando de Oliveira, 8 years ago

I mean, changing the statistics and version to 5.0 is enough to apply it?

comment:14 by Armin K, 8 years ago

Yes. It might need to be applied manually though since book's instructions were changed since I sent the patch.

comment:15 by Fernando de Oliveira, 8 years ago

OK, thanks. Will build and DEST install, just for the statistics.

comment:16 by Fernando de Oliveira, 8 years ago

I have this in configure:

System User: pulse System Group: pulse

However in the patch, these, user and group, are not anymore created. Is there any chance that the version 4.99 is different from this one, in this respect?

comment:17 by Armin K, 8 years ago

See the patch, it adds an additional command block to remove the file that requires the user, along with url as an xml comment.

comment:18 by Fernando de Oliveira, 8 years ago

Found that. Thanks.

I could not find qpaeq, probably do not have the required dependency.

Thank you for all, Armin. Please, check if I forgot anything.

Fixed at r12861.
