Patch to enable elogind support for PulseAudio


I noted the existence of elogind, and I think it should be supported by PulseAudio. Someone sent a patch to add that support, so I think it would be nice to test it in order to add elogind support.

There it goes.

Is the patch from 'someone' already upstream? Or is there an upstream bug to track?
Comment 2 jorgicio 2018-10-02 18:52:06 UTC
I found the patch in a similar request, but directly to freedesktop. I don't know it would be merged upstream.
Comment 3 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-10-03 06:44:30 UTC
Thanks for the upstream link!

    media-sound/pulseaudio: add elogind support
    My precious configure variables. They tricksed pulseaudio into building
    the systemd module against elogind.
    elogind support gives each logind session their very own PA client.
    Clients for everyone, yay!
