Or, dependent on your outlook: "disable with extreme prejudice"... and then rejoice.


I'm not sure I like root being assigned to the 'audio' group; it just doesn't feel right: but then pulse is architecturally questionable at the best of times...

Yep, does root need to be assigned to any group whatsoever?

It's required to get the same behavior that we had previously with ALSA. The audio devices in /dev are owned by root:audio, so root had audio access with ALSA. With PulseAudio, unless root is explicitly part of the audio group, root cannot output audio through the PulseAudio daemon, which some users had found surprising (including myself). Whether part of the audio group or not, root has full privileges with the raw ALSA devices anyway, so it's not like root really gets any extra privileges with this minor change. IMO, pulse shouldn't be getting in the way of root -- root should be able to do anything.

But if you don't like it, and don't plan to use audio as root, you can always remove root from the audio group. But it'll probably come back each time pulse is upgraded, and it won't make anything "safer".

Hi,

I wanted to post my thought on that, but, let's not discuss PA here.

That sounds vaguely similar to how distributions like Debian, Ubuntu, and others operate trying to force you away from using root to a user account where the only access to root-services is via sudo.

kde/kde-workspace-4.11.22-x86_64-4.txz: Rebuilt.
Fixed a bug with generating the initial panel where two Konqueror launchers
would be created. Instead, there will be one launcher each for Dolphin,
Konqueror, Firefox, and Konsole.
Thanks to Eric Hameleers.
Nice touch!
Thanks to Alien BOB (and Johnson).
