https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=258579 Bug ID: 258579 Summary: audio/kmix consider making multimedia/kdemultimedia not dependent upon KMix Product: Ports & Packages Version: Latest Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Some People Priority: --- Component: Individual Port(s) Assignee: kde@FreeBSD.org Reporter: email@example.com Flags: maintainer-feedback?(kde@FreeBSD.org) Assignee: kde@FreeBSD.org KMix seems to be indirectly problematic in cases such as these: <https://forums.FreeBSD.org/threads/80412/post-524012> where I chose to force deletion of KMix, then create and register a fake manifest to prevent reinstallation; <https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/75044/> involving a headset and a USB switch. Thoughts ======== On one hand: a logical response to this bug report might be, refrain from installing multimedia/kdemultimedia (instead: perform installation of discrete packages). On the other hand: logically, a person should not encounter such difficulties with audio – with or without USB. Given real-world difficulties with audio/USB, can multimedia/kdemultimedia be changed to _not_ depend upon KMix? At least, until difficulties can be more easily worked around or resolved.
