pulseaudio: pid.c: Stale PID file, overwriting. pulseaudio: main.c: setrlimit(RLIMIT_NICE, (31, 31)) failed: Operation not permitted pulseaudio: main.c: setrlimit(RLIMIT_RTPRIO, (9, 9)) failed: Operation not permitted
I’ve tried adding myself to the
pulse-rt group on the basis of a 2 year old
message about Hardy, and setting ALSA manually in the sound options. Eeech,
this is not good. Haven’t had this level of instability since, erm, RedHat 5.
I tried removing pulseaudio entirely. Sadly, Ubuntu-desktop depends on it. So, removing it would fix the crashes but in a way which, I feel, rather defeats the point.
