(Solved) Problem with pulse following recent d-u
« on: 2016/01/28, 00:59:02 »
Hi folks,

while attempting a recent dist-upgrade an error occurred with pulse audio packages.

I was prompted to run 'apt-get -f install' to fix the problem, but this was not sucessful.

Output is below,

Code: [Select]
apt-get -f install

Any suggestions as to what I need to do to fix this, as I am unable to complete a d-u due to this.

Cheers.

Have you tried killing pulse before upgrading it

killall pulseaudio

or

killall -9 pulseaudio


Last time i seen anything pulse updated was on the 23rd of this month, and that was gstreamer1.0-pulseaudio:amd64 (looking thru logs)

What I have here is

Code: [Select]
piper@x1:~$ apt policy libpulsedsp
libpulsedsp:
  Installed: 7.1-2
  Candidate: 7.1-2
  Version table:
     7.99.2-1 1
          1 http://httpredir.debian.org/debian experimental/main amd64 Packages
 *** 7.1-2 500
        500 http://httpredir.debian.org/debian unstable/main amd64 Packages
        500 http://httpredir.debian.org/debian testing/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
piper@x1:~$ apt policy pulseaudio-utils
pulseaudio-utils:
  Installed: 7.1-2
  Candidate: 7.1-2
  Version table:

If you try removing libpulsedsp first, does that help?

Thanks for the suggestion Piper, unfortunately it didn't work mate, same error as before.

Here's my currently installed 'pa' packages...

Code: [Select]
apt-cache policy pulseaudio
pulseaudio:
  Installed: 7.1.0+20151207-1
  Candidate: 7.1.0+20151207-1
  Version table:
     7.99.2-1 1
          1 http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian experimental/main amd64 Packages
 *** 7.1.0+20151207-1 500
        500 http://debian.orson.at/repositories/daily experimental/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     7.1-2 500
        500 http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian unstable/main amd64 Packages

Odd seems I have a version from experimental installed.

Bugger, now I remember I was pulling down packages for my new keyboard from "orson.at", and it's pulled down his pulse packages.

I wasn't paying attention.

Perhaps force a 'downgrade' somehow.

Also here's something that might help,

Code: [Select]
dpkg -l pulseaudio*

@seasons,

tried your suggestion before posting without success.

Cheers to you both.

Try removing purging it, # out the experimental repo and reinstall

I believe

As user

Code: [Select]
killall pulseaudio
As root

Code: [Select]
killall pulseaudio
Code: [Select]
apt remove --purge pulseaudio pulseaudio-module-x11 paman paprefs pavucontrol
should be enough

You probably also want to remove pulseaudio-utils and gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio.

Delete the pulseaudio cookie

$ rm ~/.pulse-cookie


Nowadays you can't entirely remove pulseaudio because many media packages depend on libpulse0 and simply won't install or work without it

Reboot and reinstall

You might want to do a simulation first


Code: [Select]
apt remove --purge pulseaudio pulseaudio-module-x11 paman paprefs pavucontrol pulseaudio-utils gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio -s

Delete the pulseaudio cookie

$ rm ~/.pulse-cookie

That was the old location for it. Pulseaudio moved its config files to ~/.config to be XDG compliant.
So it's now ~/.config/pulse/cookie

My latest build, built by me is siduction-15.1.0-thunderstruck-kde-amd64-201601211214.iso a week old, and i still have the cookie in the location I said, I have also tested this.




Pulse has it's own folder with a cookie in it also
