pulseaudio problems

I have installed pulseaudio and pavucontrol on Xfce (debian GNU Linux amd64 jessie 8 stable; GA-X79-UD3 with two GPUs). I managed in /etc/pulse/default.pa to switch from default HDMI to analog output:

### Make some devices default
#set-default-sink output
#set-default-source input
# set-default-source alsa_input.pci-0000_00_1b.analog-stereo
set-default-sink alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo

However, with the for-last line commented out, as above, or uncommented out, <pavucontrol> command leads to a blinking device, i.e., (as far as I understand) there is a continuous switch between headphone and line out analog. I noticed on Internet that this is a bug.

With the same OS on a simpler desktop without GPUs/CUDA (and gnome3 in place of Xfce) there is no such problem, and sound works nicely on the same couple of speakers.

Re: pulseaudio problems

hi, you could try to replace those pulseaudio functions with ALSA. I had, and still I have it sad, a problem with Pulseaudio in KDE Plasma, and could temporally solve it with kmix (ALSA for KDE).
