Is there any way to set pipewire as the default audio server on clear linux, and disable pulseaudio at the same time? Normal systemctl commands don’t seem to work at disabling/enabling these services, and pulseaudio remains running and default despite my attempts to replace it.
Many thanks, that’s fixed it. Just in time for the F1 practice too :o)
I’m still at the recipe following stage so doubt I’d have sorted that anytime soon.
So anytime I build something that puts a library somewhere I need to update whatever ld.so is , I see its a “dynamic linker loader”. I think this will fix a couple of other issues I’ve had building stuff to.
I was using the Ardour flatpak quite happily with Pipewire Jack, however some plugins did not work, so I tried a downloaded binary from Ardour, and also built it myself from source.
Flatpak Ardour can see the Pipewire Jack Server emulation running and connect to it, however Native Ardour cannot. Native Ardour only connects to Pipewire using Pulse.
Some github sleuthing by someone smarter than me has revealed that Flatpak Ardour has the pw-jack bridge running inside the container, which then connects to the xdg-run/pipewire-0 socket in Clear Linux.
Apparently pw-jack does not exist on Clear,
So I’m wondering
if there is a cunning workaround for this
whether it could be turned on in a subsequent build
what would happen if I build pipewire myself and installed it in the user space, where I’ve installed wireplumber.
would user space installed packages like this work like config files in /etc/ ? in that they take precedence over system supplied ones? so I’d have two sets of pipewire binaries, the system ones, and mine /usr/local, and the system would run mine?
Good grief, sounds like he was having a stroke. all I got was he was piping audio from one PC to another using netJack, which is a horrible idea for live audio. sounds like he also hacked a monitoring setup. I’ve done network video in a live rig VJing, dropping a few frames isn’t really noticeable, but audio seems like a needless hack. streaming to small devices from a server using Kodi is ok because sync doesn’t matter. Jack2 is janky enough already without adding the nightmare of dropped packets and all that stuff. thinking about it I’ve seen people doing radio work using Jack network for adverts and that kind of thing, that doesn’t need to stay in sync.
I have no idea about netword audio with Pipewire and Pipewire-Jack as I cannot get Pipewire-Jack working on my laptop, I tried building pipewire form source and the compiler crashes everytime. I then tried using the autospec tool to build it but that also crashes. so I gave up for the moment. urgh. back to the acoustic guitar.
