12.1 > Audio > pulseaudio (0.9.10)

pulseaudio is a networked sound server for Unix-like operating systems
and Microsoft Windows. It is intended to be an improved drop-in replacement
for the Enlightened Sound Daemon (ESOUND).

Pulseaudio will need a pulse group/user to run. You can add one with
# groupadd -g 214 pulse
# useradd -u 214 -g pulse -d /var/lib/pulse pulse
or something similar. See

Pulseaudio requires liboil, libatomic_ops, libsamplerate and libsndfile,
and libcap. It will also make use of jack-audio-connection-kit. All of
these dependencies are available at
