pulseaudio can't start with default configuration

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


I'm having trouble to start pulseaudio:

root@OpenWrt:~# ps | grep pulse

1912 root 1184 S grep pulse

root@OpenWrt:~# /etc/init.d/pulseaudio start
E: [pulseaudio] main.c: Daemon startup failed.

I tried some other ways to start the daemon (without --daemonize):
root@OpenWrt:~# /usr/bin/pulseaudio --system --disallow-exit --disallow-module-loading --disable-sh
m --exit-idle-time=-1
W: [pulseaudio] main.c: OK, so you are running PA [...] bad idea.
E: [pulseaudio] main.c: Daemon startup without any loaded modules, refusing to work.

Is there something wrong with the default setup?

It should work after installing udev. Looks like that this is needed to satisfy /usr/lib/pulse-1.1/modules/ which apparently fails to load if /lib/ isn't present - yay pulseaudio.

It should probably be made a conditional compilation dependency.
