apulse for tinycore
« on: March 30, 2019, 10:50:08 AM »
   hi tinycore team and everyone

   i hope this is of interest

   on the puppy linux forum there is a thread for corepup
   which is an attempt to combine the advantages of tinycore and puppy 

   fredx a puppy member has made an apulse tcz
   that allows the newest firefox to have sound without pulseaudio

   i first load alsa and alsaconfig and alsagui
   then the apulse and libatomic tcz
   then start firefox with apulse firefox in the terminal

   and now have sound with alsa/apulse in the latest firefox 

   if you go to the corepup thread in puppy there will be the tcz and instructions

   also corepup has a very stripped down jwm with only one jwmrc file
   called corepup-jwm and corepup.jwmrc
   that might be of some interest to minimalists

Hello ulfr

We tried apulse back in 2017, http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,21268.msg132892.html#msg132892

I made extensions that would install apulse on tc-8 & tc-9 for both x x86 & x86_64 systems  however in the long term I found apulse to be unreliable and resolved to install alsa and pulseaudio for reliability,  much better overall.
