Description Franz Trischberger 2013-02-05 17:34:34 UTC
Created attachment 338028 [details] kde modules missing pulseaudio I just realised that pulseaudio broke sound in some video files using gstreamer. So I wanted to get rid of it. After selectively taking away pulseaudio USE-Flag from kde-apps and recompiling (+ uninstalling pulse) kde would not start, complaining about libpulse being not present. I looked into the packages (kded_powerdevil + kded_keyboard could not be loaded) and systemsettings + powerdevil did not depend on pulseaudio. I also can't see where they should need pulse - it should be abstracted away through phonon. So doing a grep only on the modules in /usr/lib64/kde4 gave me a horrific list... Is that really by intention? Or is there a (buggy) list with dependending libs? Or do those packages simply lack pulse-USE-Flag?

Since a number of packages from your list which have broken links do not appear to reference pulseaudio in any way, I am guessing that one or more root packages (phonon?) are introducing bogus links to dependant packages. Unfortunately I am using a forced --as-needed configuration which is likely breaking unused links so I can't really help troubleshoot.

I doubt that the attached list is valid. Known bug about kde related pulseaudio ebuild issue is #433627. If you find other packages please open for each package a seperate bug.
