Subject description: Installed pulseaudio to restore audio in Firefox
 

Installed Pulseaudio from the package manager including all dependencies. then received error messages that libpulsecore-8.0.so and libprotocol-native.so are missing from a number of module x11 files:

File /usr/lib/pulse-8.0/modules/module-x11-cork-request.so has these missing library files:
File /usr/lib/pulse-8.0/modules/module-x11-bell.so has these missing library files:
File /usr/lib/pulse-8.0/modules/module-x11-xsmp.so has these missing library files:
File /usr/lib/pulse-8.0/modules/module-x11-publish.so has these missing library files:

I have since removed pulse audio through the package manager. Is there any solution so audio will work in Firefox for this version of puppy?

Firefox can be compiled to use alsa rather than pulseaudio.

I haven't used Quirky Xerus64 recently. Maybe someone who has it installed and knows about compiling, could do it?

For guidance on how to compile firefox, Linux From Scratch is most helpful:

http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/cvs/xsoft/firefox.html

...it shows gtk3 as a dependency, however should build with gtk2. I have just compiled SeaMonkey 2.49.4 for EasyOS, and that still compiles with gtk2.

Install Firefox and try doing this:

Just have the apulse 0.1.11 from here installed. Nothing else.
Make sure to use the correct bit version.

Reboot after you install it to make sure it is saved and loaded at the correct place.

You will also need this:

/root/.mozilla/firefox
Look for a directory that ends in .default

Put the user.js file in that directory.

Use Geany to make this user.js file.
This is what needs to be in it.
watchdog's code
Code:
// for using apulse with latest firefox
user_pref("security.sandbox.content.write_path_whitelist", "/dev/snd/");
user_pref("security.sandbox.content.syscall_whitelist", "/dev/snd/");
user_pref("security.sandbox.content.read_path_whitelist", "/dev/snd/");
[/quote]

Build 58 requires user_pref("security.sandbox.content.syscall_whitelist", "/dev/snd/"); to be set to "16" now instead of /dev/snd/, so am currently using

Code:
// for using apulse with latest firefox
user_pref("security.sandbox.content.write_path_whitelist", "/dev/snd/");
user_pref("security.sandbox.content.syscall_whitelist", "16");
user_pref("security.sandbox.content.read_path_whitelist", "/dev/snd/");

can confirm this.
Fortunately it's still possible to compile seamonkey with gtk2 and alsa.
I'm using seamonkey 2.49.3 DE (gtk2) for 3 month without any kind of problems.
