phone, is that a voip phone or software phone connected to the computer or just a reason why you stopped vlc?

2) ok now we can start to move foreward from one of my earlier questions--do you need to swap between sound devices
---if its just a phone excuse then

you could now consider installing pulseaudio

I suggest you install the works, as per my old guide
http://techpatterns.com/forums/about2179.html

ie apt-get install pulseaudio paman pavucontrol pavumeter paprefs

3) please copy and paste exactly what is installed in case you don't like it, so you can un-install them

better still I recommend you image your system partition with a live cd/usb using fsarchiver

one live cd that I know has it is http://www.sysresccd.org/System-tools

I assume you are non-raided and non-LVM but YMMV and its much faster than partimage.

about 3G of data takes about 5 minutes to write or restore, on my system specs which is average 2G ram dual core E5200 intels

4) If you do decide to go ahead, pls pls pls use home folder configs as per my link
then its a breeze to make a change and just log out and log back in rather than much around trying to find out
whether pulseaudio -k stuff is needed etc

PA also has some tweaks but just to be the forest, PA allows on-the-fly swapping of sound devices analog to hdmi and back.

good luck

oh btw the phone was just an interruption that caused me to pause the video nothing more.

still working to get pulse audio built.

but on a side question was curious how do I default and/or switch system audio (no particular player) from hdmi to analog and reverse.

thanks

PA has lots of control panels, when you want to swap you click on TAB and pulldown and choose analog or hdmi (various options) and no need to reboot

2) have you looked at http://slackbuilds.org/repository/12...io/pulseaudio/

config tab for pavucontrol is what you need

a quick google shows image http://community.linuxmint.com/img/s...avucontrol.png

yes working on building that now. bumped it to 4.0 issues but running into a dependency

no trouble building but trying to find the right json I see json-glib and json-c and so on around
Code:
no package 'json' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIBJSON_CFLAGS
and LIBJSON_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
so time to do a little more reading

compiling now json-c
https://s3.amazonaws.com/json-c_rele...ses/index.html

hmm built fine installed fine I am slackware64 but it installed to /usr/local/lib so I added that to /etc/ld.so.conf and ran ldconfig and pulseaudio not seeing it. scratching head, can't reboot atm as grandson is watching mary poppins so got to wait till its done.

thats what i am working off the last url you sent I tried the current 2.0 it works with and moded the slackbuild script to work with the latest stable 4.0 and still getting a missing json error when I ./configure I built the required json-c that is in the slackbuilds page for the 14.0 url and scratching my head here as it says its missing but i built it, linked it and rescan my libs.

trust me I find this fun figuring out puzzles and it only add's to learning.

pls start a new thread in slackware as I don't use it myself.

no rush come back when you have it sorted

2) suggest you copy and paste your terminal output to a file sharing site and link to it
or if its small show it in a code box-----not here but your new post

good luck

PS Do you enjoy compiling software?
you may enjoy LFS distro or TinyCore etc
