Thin client running pulseaudio as system daemon, GNOME desktop running remotely over ssh tunnel.

                /usr/bin/pulseaudio --system \
                --exit-idle-time=-1 \
                --disable-shm \
                --no-cpu-limit \

These parameters worked with pulseaudio in F-9 and F-10.  What changed in pulseaudio F-11?

Do we need to change parameters to pulseaudio system daemon?
Will these new parameters work with pulseaudio F-9 and F-10?

Looks like a permission problem. Could you please get me the full debug output with -vvvvvvvvv?

Comment 2 Warren Togami 2009-04-22 20:51:41 UTC
Permission problem, fixed elsewhere.
