    sound works, except in X

    I have a FreeBSD guest I'm trying to get stood-up in VirtualBox-OSE. Sound works from the console (e.g. I can `cat /dev/random > /dev/dsp` and hear static, as my unprivileged user) but there's no functional sound in X, and videos won't play in Chromium on YouTube. Historically this has meant a...

    Error building chromium with pulseaudio support

    I'm trying to build chromium with pulseaudio support, but I'm encountering an error when building. Not sure if it's because of the pulseaudio support or if I just can't build chromium on my system. I installed all the build dependencies listed here and after building for about an hour it...

    No sound and video after upgrading to Gnome-41. Many /dev/dsp4.x files created in Gnome session

    Firstly, I got sound and video working fine in FreeBSD before upgrading to Gnome-4X versions. As a desperate attempt, I switched to KDE Plasma now and sound, video working fine. But, I would prefer to get Gnome-41 with audio working. So, right now in Gnome-41 - no audio working. I would like...

    apulse – PulseAudio emulation for ALSA

    <https://github.com/i-rinat/apulse#readme> If apulse could be ported to FreeBSD, might there be fewer complaints about PulseAudio? (Hint: this is not an invitation to complain about PulseAudio.)

    PulseAudio, upstream and down

    If I recall correctly: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/pulseaudio/pulseaudio/-/merge_requests/277 – this 2020 pull request (with patches from FreeBSD) was made, upstream, with the intention of FreeBSD subsequently benefiting from the merge. True? If so: are we (downstream) still awaiting the...

    Using sndio in place of pulseaudio

    Like me, you might be struggling a lot with sound, ever since pulseaudio came up. However, there actually is an alternative that sparked out of the OpenBSD community. It's a light weight and just works. Sadly it isn't what applications use per default, so one is currently forced to use ports...
