    Pulseaudio configuration issue


    Hi all,

    "if your sound card doesn't have several hardware channes for mixing, then only one application can use it at a time -- the first one wins.
    you can set up pulseaudio or dmixer to solve that"

    That was a friendly answer when i ask that sometimes when i boot my computer have sound and others no.

    I downloaded pulseaudio but i dont know how to configure it to solve the sound problem.

    Can anyone point me to right documentation or give some simple instructions to archive it?

    Thanks,

    I believe that PulseAudio is included in the latest Xubuntu. You might consider upgrading to it (Hardy Heron/8.04) as it will probably be easier than installing Pulse from scratch.

    Bigtomrodney,
    When i said i download it i mean that i successfully downloaded and installed it with synaptic.
    What i dont know is how to configure it so i can make the sound play at my distro whatever time i boot.
    thanks,
