Topic: Post Install - Audio In Iceweasel
Have successfully installed Milky Way v0.3 to the CLI.
Had one stumper trying to launch xenocara from the CLI. It was not at all clear to me that I needed to install "xenocara-init" to invoke the X desktop. After some investigation, online hints led me to find the init package and give it a try. So far so good as JWM is running just fine.
However, instead of stumbling in the dark again, I would like some feedback on sound in Iceweasel-uxp. The web browser launches and runs fine, though without sound. Presently, I have only "alsa-utils" and "alsa-lib" packages installed. ALSA has been added to openrc with the "rc-update add alsasound default" command and sound is generated successfully at the CLI with this test "speaker-test -t wav -c 6".
Investigation into mozilla derivative browsers suggests that "pulseaudio" is required for sound in the browser. However, there are also some online suggestions that "sndio" is a replacement for "pulseaudio" and will solve the browser sound problem.
So the question is what packages and configuration are required to generate sound in Iceweasel-uxp?
Thanks for all the help in advance.
