      All,


      I wrote a PulseAudio driver for Quisk I would like to share. You may be aware that most Linux installations have moved on from ALSA to PulseAudio, which abstracts the hardware and allows you to connect audio streams around as it best suits you. Previously, the only PulseAudio support for Quisk used the ALSA plugin. The result was that all the streams appeared identical in the PulseAudio mixer, and the audio had to take a trip from ALSA to PulseAudio back to ALSA to finally get to the sound card. I fixed this by writing a new PulseAudio driver, and not only are the streams identifiable, but the audio is now much more stable (at least for me). I submitted a patch to the author, Jim Ahlstrom, but wanted to give it to you to use/try in the meantime.


      To patch, you will need the 3.6.16 Quisk tarball and to install the PulseAudio development package for your distribution. The patch itself is quisk-pulseaudio.diff in the files section.


          tar -xzf quisk-3.6.16.tar.gz

          patch -d quisk-3.6.16/ -p1 < quisk-pulseaudio.diff

          cd quisk-3.6.16/

          make


      To use, just use "pulse" as the device name(s) in your quisk configuration file as always, and use pavucontrol or another PulseAudio mixer to connect the streams to your cards. Looking forward to your feedback!
