big_dog1968 wrote:What does this mean? I keep hearing about pulse audio, and when I looked it up, it appeared to be a synthesizer or something. Is it more meaningful than that? Also, am I to assume that QT front ends would mean a more integrated look or does the lack mean somewhat less functionality. As you can tell I am a less techinical user, so those statements were unclear to me.
Also, if these are important to you/us, can they be added as an update later?
akshunj wrote:PulseAudio brought awesome sound server functionality to Gnome, but it sounds like integrating it with KDE is tougher due to the hooks that aRTs has into everything. aRTs is the KDE sound server. It's not as functional as PulseAudio, but it's been around for years and everything seems to rely on it. And it's not *that* bad. Certainly not as bad as Esound for Gnome...

Linux Mint 5 KDE CE Beta 44.

Release it with a "known issues" disclaimer so the rest of us can try it. Maybe it'll be otherwise perfect, maybe not and we'll have more testers to hunt for more bugs before 5-Final is released (and maybe avoid Gnome 5's oops with one of the tools).
