I'm developing linuxice
and I'm currently having an issue with getting sound working. LinuxICE is based on ubuntu but built from the ground up with only the bare necessities (ie, no GDM, etc). I'm starting a minimal session by logging into the user via mingetty in /etc/event.d/tty1 and then startx via ~/.bash_profile.
aplay -l says i have no sound cards, while sudo aplay -l lists it correctly. Pulseaudio reports that it's using a NULL Output device for sound. Killing it and restarting it does nothing.
ck-list-sesssions lists: "active = FALSE".
Any help would be appreciated. My guess is that consolekit (or something else), isn't giving the user permission for the audio devices and thus pulseaudio run in user mode cannot access the sound devices either...
