Pulse Audio Error I Think

Fri Feb 01, 2013 10:50 am

Hi guys,

Can anyone shed some light on this error perhaps :

Feb 1 12:35:54 raspberrypi pulseaudio[2557]: [alsa-sink] alsa-sink.c: ALSA woke us up to write new data to the device, but there was actually nothing to write!
Feb 1 12:35:54 raspberrypi pulseaudio[2557]: [alsa-sink] alsa-sink.c: Most likely this is a bug in the ALSA driver 'snd_bcm2835'. Please report this issue to the ALSA developers.
Feb 1 12:35:54 raspberrypi pulseaudio[2557]: [alsa-sink] alsa-sink.c: We were woken up with POLLOUT set -- however a subsequent snd_pcm_avail() returned 0 or another value < min_avail.
Feb 1 12:35:55 raspberrypi pulseaudio[2557]: [pulseaudio] server-lookup.c: Unable to contact D-Bus: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NotSupported: Unable to autolaunch a dbus-daemon without a $DISPLAY for X11
Feb 1 12:35:55 raspberrypi pulseaudio[2557]: [pulseaudio] main.c: Unable to contact D-Bus: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NotSupported: Unable to autolaunch a dbus-daemon without a $DISPLAY for X11

Ideally I don't think we even need pulse anymore, as alsa should for without it but I'm not sure of this error. Any ideas :)

Thanks!

Thats in the log files, right? I have seen most if not all of them yet everything seems to be working OK here.. I think most or all are not critical messages. For example I get the x11 error when I'm only using bash shell, (no x11, startx involved), so I guess I dont care about that "error". Have you noticed problems with audio?

This can be fixed add the following to your /etc/rc.local file

Code: Select all

DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=unix:path=/run/dbus/system_bus_socket
DBUS_SESSION_BUS_PID=`cat /run/dbus/pid`
pulseaudio --start
This just tells pulseaudio where to find the dbus session.
