What starts /usr/bin/pulseaudio on a fedora machine?

0 votes

I looked in /lib/systemd and /etc/systemd, recursively, and none of the services or dependencies have the string pulseaudio in them.

FWIW, I tried the two following commands and got nothing from either of  them:

ps aux | grep pulse | grep -i grep
ps aux | grep audio | grep -i grep

Checking, Xfce starts it when I log in, which explains why my morning alarm clock doesn't sound off if my computer reboots and I haven't logged back in yet.

Your command should to be

ps aux | grep pulse | grep -v grep
not -i

It depends on the desktop.

In KDE, kdeinit5 will call /bin/start-pulseaudio-x11 and if in /etc/pulse/client.conf autospawn is set to yes (default) then pulseaudio will be started with the parameters specified in that config file.

I'm running Fedora-24(beta)/KDE, and sendmail/email (through KMail) is failing.
When I try to send email I get the warning "Failed to transmit message", and journalctl has the entry
"sendmail.service: PID file /run/ not readable (yet?)
after start: No such file or directory".

I've checked, and is in place:

$ sudo cat /run/ 
/usr/sbin/sendmail -bd -q1h 

Googling for the journalctl entry, I see people have been encountering this problem for years. But I haven't seen any solution offered. Several of the comments suggest that it is a systemd problem.

please help?

For some reason I have to temporarily deactivate IPv6 interface configuration on a F22 server box.

According to documentation (or at least as I understood) it could be done either by adding

to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0


to /etc/sysconfig/network

I tried both, executed "nmcli c reload", "systemctl restart NetworkManager", even rebooted the system. No change in network configuration. In ifconfig I have a local link address as well as a global address as advertised by the router and autoconfig based on mac address.

All those options are documented in usr/share/doc/initscripts/sysconfig.txt, so I guess these are still valid options.

Now I am wondering what I may have overlooked or missed?

Any hint appreciated.

I don't know why, but after rebooting my f21 server it goes to the 'initial setup' screen. It's already all setup - how can I get out of this?

So, I read the blurb that strongly advises against doing an iso-based fedup, and strongly encouraging a network-based fedup in order to yank in all the updates at once.

I have a bunch of machines to upgrade to both the workstation and server products. Having each one download everything it needs, is going to get real old.

In the past I simply rsync-ed the installation image. I have plenty of disk space on the LAN. Then I just fedup-ed everything from my rsynced image. This was almost the most efficient way to get everything updated.

Is there a single repository that I can keep rsync-ing regularly, and use it to upgrade my machines “ to both workstation and server products“ over a period of time?
