Sound.errors on ~Current


I'm getting these on screen (not in logs) as I boot up to runlevel 3.

Code:
E: [pulseaudio] module.c: Failed to load module "module-alsa-sink" (argument: "device=hw:0,3 sink_name=hdmi sink_properties="device.description='HDMI Stereo'""): initialization failed.
E: [pulseaudio] main.c: Sink alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo does not exist.
W: [pulseaudio] server-lookup.c: Unable to contact D-Bus: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NotSupported: Unable to autolaunch a dbus-daemon without a $DISPLAY for X11
W: [pulseaudio] main.c: Unable to contact D-Bus: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NotSupported: Unable to autolaunch a dbus-daemon without a $DISPLAY for X11
IIRC, hw:0,3 is the hdmi, but asound.conf redirects that all to pulse. So I don't know why I'm seeing that. HDMI is connected currently.

It complains about 2 missing files in /tmp/pulse-<random> on shutdown. Sound seems to work. Sound card is this:
Code:
0:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 04)
	Subsystem: Samsung Electronics Co Ltd 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller
	Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 30
	Memory at c0210000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
	Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 2
	Capabilities: [60] MSI: Enable+ Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+
	Capabilities: [70] Express Root Complex Integrated Endpoint, MSI 00
	Capabilities: [100] Virtual Channel
	Capabilities: [130] Root Complex Link
	Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel
	Kernel modules: snd_hda_intel
D-Bus does it's usual thing of writhing in agony into the log files but doing whatever it does. And since nobody knows what it does, it never gets fixed or patched.

If I am right, there is the amusingly named "Pulse Audio volume controll" which is more like a mixer. Run both your sound source, playing some kind of sound output, and "Pulse Audio volume controll" at the same time. Somewhere on the volume control is a popup menu that will allow you to switch between sound sources.

I saw in a quite recent update that the asoundrc could be reseted in a very simple state. Not really knowing how that works I decided to keep the old one. Fine till then.

Could this behaviour be related ?

I forgot about this thread - the sound actually worked then, but I appreciate both your comments.

I solved this in an unusual fashion: I blew the system up, and am re-configuring after a reinstall, or an upgrade. When the dust settles, if I still have a sound system that complains, I'll probably post again, on the basis that if something says it isn't working, it probably isn't.
