Sounds server code

Postby pheonixstorm » Thu Mar 15, 2012 9:23 pm

Cleaning out the code atm and run across a lot of references to soundserver in the music.cpp file. Is this safe to remove or does the linux binary still require some of it?

Why not try a regex and see if you find any other references.But I do think kluass did make soundsever completely redundant.

Enjoy the Choice :)

Nah, it wasn't me.

I actually made a lot of improvements to soundserver back in the day, but it's exactly in linux where it becomes troublesome, because older ALSA installations didn't like multiple processes contending for single-stream DACs. AC3 codecs require software downmixing and it was poorly configured in most linux distros back in the day.

I'm confident it would work a lot better nowadays, but I am on the road to making it all become redundant with the new SUCSS soundsystem. It's on the roadmap for 0.5.2 that it will replace the current DJ.

So... yes... soundserver should be purged.
