Description Sylvain Garrigues 2016-04-04 22:45:37 UTC
pulseaudio server doesn't want to start:

# pulseaudio  --start
E: [(null)] conf-parser.c: [/usr/local/etc/pulse/daemon.conf:19] Missing '='.

Line 19 of said file:
changequote(`[', `]')dnl Set up m4 quoting

There are plenty of these in all configuration files.

Note: I am running on FreeBSD/arm.
Comment 1 Sylvain Garrigues 2016-04-05 12:12:56 UTC
Seems like an arm-specific bug since there is no problem on my amd64 box.
Comment 2 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2018-01-13 04:46:18 UTC
Is this still relevant.

  audio/pulseaudio-module-sndio: Unbreak on armv6/armv7

  `pulseaudio --version` fails to run on armv6/armv7 because
  etc/pulse/daemon.conf generation fails and still has m4 macros
  embedded in it.

  Get the PulseAudio version from pkg-config instead.

Nope. The commit was for pulseaudio-module-sndio not pulseaudio.
Last time I checked this problem still exists.
