Bug Description

Ever since I upgraded to Intrepid, I have been facing an issue with the sound system, which I have discussed here

Editing /etc/openal/alsoft.conf and changing the device value in the section titled [alsa] as below fixes it (at least for me).

device = pulse

However, it would be easier if the default settings handled this automatically.

If you set the device setting to default, and ensure pulseaudio is running on intrepid, or preferably jaunty, do you get the same behavior as you would if you set the device to pulse? I.e does the sound play the same, no crackling, popping etc?

Changed in openal-soft (Ubuntu):
