I think I've exhausted google with my endless searching for a solution so I thought I'd ask for help here. I'm building an XBMC LTSP network at home, I have everything working pretty well except for sound on certain ION based systems. XBMC is running as a local app in standalone mode.
04:48
Pulse seems to be defaulting to the first device hw:1,3 instead of hw:1,7. I've tried to manually add the right one by putting load-module module-alsa-sink device=hw:1,7 in both /etc/pulse/default.pa and system.pa but it doesn't seem to make a difference.
04:50
I know that pulse doesn't run as the user with LTSP which adds some complexity but I thought system.pa would apply to my environment. I'm adding this to the chroot environment, although I tried it on the LTSP server, just for kicks.
04:52
I should probably add that I'm trying to get sound through the hdmi port.
04:59
I have been able to get it to work by logging in to a unity session then opening up the sound preferences and selecting the output manually but can't figure out how to get it to default to the right setting.

alkisg: thanks for the reply. I messed with pactl for a bit but as far as I could tell you could only change the sink of a preexisting audio source. I'll dig deeper though and see what I can find.
06:02
<alkisg>
prestain: also you can use the chroot as a fat client so that pulse is started inside the user session, if it helps you
06:02
thin clients => system pulseaudio, fat clients => user pulseaudio
06:04
<prestain>
Good to know, running as a fat client would probably be simpler.

<Enslaver>
so help me think here, since el6 doesn't compile nbd as a module I would need a custom kernel distributed with my rpms, but I'm thinking, couldn't i just distribute a custom initrd with it? I mean the only time the nbd module us called is in the initramfs

<warren>
Enslaver: huh? the initrd is generated during kernel install time
22:31
Enslaver: or anytime later with arbitrary dracut calls
22:31
Enslaver: btw, looked at how rpmfusion kmod packages work?
22:32
<Enslaver>
dracut makes the initrd but not only during install time but also when the re-wrap kernels is ran
22:32
I'm trying to separate the /boot inside the chroot from the /var/lib/tftpboot/i386 files
22:33
i am thinking of leaving the ltsp chroot alone and having only the tftpboot directory have the initrd supporting the nbd
22:33
either that or doing more like a dkms style rpm for just nbd, just not sure how to do that with kernel module
22:34
rpm fusion, thats sag's thing right?
22:34
dag*
23:00
<warren>
Enslaver: why not just provide a kernel replacement?
23:01
<Enslaver>
not something i'd prefer to maintain, plus it allows for any variant / custom kernel straight from the distribution, cleaner in my opinion

I somewhat recall there was a reason other than nbd for doing your own kernel.
23:36
oh
