(but correct me if I'm wrong). However, I think Debian has decided to
go with 3.2 kernel for the next stable release. This means no
kcontrols. How is this being handled in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, since it
will also be based on kernel 3.2
For Ubuntu 12.04, I've backported the jack detection patches from 3.3 and
applied them to the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS kernel.
Can this still be done in the scenario were Debian has pulseaudio 2.0
with your patches, but kernel 3.2?
Sorry for the basic questions. I just found out that the release of
pulseaudio 2.0 is imminentand I want to push for its adoption in
Debian, but with a fix for this HDMI issue.
So, with PA 2.0 but without jack detection support in the kernel, you would
essentially get three or four HDMI devices showing up in your GUI, and the
user would have to try them all manually to check which one is the right
one. So, better than changing PA configuration files, but not as elegant as
with the jack detection (where the right one is selected automatically), of
I've marked this bug as affecting pulseaudio. In fact, it seems (to
me) sufficient to get version 2.0 of pulseaudio into Debian to solve
With convenience and user-friendliness in mind, I feel that the jack
detection backport from kernel 3.3 to the Debian 3.2 kernel should be
done. Since Ubuntu already did it, perhaps this will be easy enough ?
