https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=258322 Bug ID: 258322 Summary: audio/pulseaudio: Do not restore card/device volumes by default Product: Ports & Packages Version: Latest Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Only Me Priority: --- Component: Individual Port(s) Assignee: desktop@FreeBSD.org Reporter: firstname.lastname@example.org Assignee: desktop@FreeBSD.org Flags: maintainer-feedback?(desktop@FreeBSD.org) Created attachment 227717 --> https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=227717&action=edit Patch PulseAudio enables module-device-restore and module-card-restore, which load and store device and card volume settings, by default. On FreeBSD, this functionality is already handled by rc.d/mixer. Further, if PulseAudio is not enabled on a system-wide basis, PulseAudio restores its own mixer settings when an application needs it. As a result, module-device-restore and module-card-restore cause a jarring experience on FreeBSD. For example, playing a video in Firefox sometimes causes the mixer volume to change suddenly as PulseAudio loads what it thinks were the previous mixer settings. This patch changes the example default.pa to not load these modules by default. This has no affect on systems with PulseAudio already installed and configured. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
