    Hi,

    I have problem with pulse audio after install from FreeBSD-8.2-x64 DVD. After installing text base system I'm going to install gnome for desktop usage and everything passed good. But after running X system and login to gnome my netbook gets warmer and warmer until no program can be run.

    I have switched to text mode and I see the system running over 100 pulse audio sessions, but the program is broken and stops.

    Pulse audio eats my all CPU and I can't run any other programs and must restart system. Please help me how to uninstall this quickly or how to repair that.

    Untested but should work...
    Code:
    pgrep pa
    pgrep pu # should show which are running from pulseaudio
    pkill 9 paplay # for example
    
     
    asnextage thanks for this.

    Thank you
    Unfortunately the system does not come up.
    I am forced to re-install FreeBSD.

    But how to get rid of Pulse Audio installed?


    Thank you both for editing and correcting the first post. (Thank you DutchDaemon)
