    Howto: Compile Pulseaudio from git

    To compile Pulseaudio from git, you need to follow this few steps.

    1) First we will need to install some dependencys (deps in the rest of the text). So, open terminal and paste this:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get build-dep pulseaudio && sudo apt-get install checkinstall git libpulse-dev
    1.1) This should install all the deps you need to compile pulseaudio. If there is some missing deps after configure (step 4), then open Synaptic and find -dev package of the missing lib.

    2) Now we will get pulseaudio from git repo:
    Code:
    git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/pulseaudio/pulseaudio
    3) Go into new pulseaudio directory where the source code is:
    Code:
    cd pulseaudio
    4) Now paste this into terminal:
    Code:
    ./autogen.sh
    - And when that is finished, then paste this:
    4.1)
    Code:
    CFLAGS="-g -O2 -fstack-protector --param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -Wformat -Wformat-security -g -O2 -fstack-protector --param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -Wformat -Wformat-security -Werror=format-security -Wall" CXXFLAGS="-g -O2 -fstack-protector --param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -Wformat -Wformat-security -g -O2 -fstack-protector --param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -Wformat -Wformat-security -Werror=format-security -Wall" CPPFLAGS="-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2" LDFLAGS="-Wl,-Bsymbolic-functions -Wl,-z,relro -Wl,--no-as-needed -lxcb" $HOME/pulseaudio/./configure --build=x86_64-linux-gnu  --prefix=/usr --includedir="\${prefix}/include" --mandir="\${prefix}/share/man" --infodir="\${prefix}/share/info" --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --libexecdir="\${prefix}/lib/pulseaudio" --srcdir=. --disable-maintainer-mode --disable-dependency-tracking --disable-silent-rules   --enable-x11 --disable-hal --libdir=\${prefix}/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu --with-module-dir=\${prefix}/lib/pulse-5.0/modules --disable-oss-wrapper
    If this finishes without any error, you can continue with step 5, but if there is an error of missing deps, then follow 1.1 step.

    5) Now we initiate a compile:
    Code:
    make -jX
    Clarification: The X in "-jX" is a number of CPU cores your computer has +1. So if you have 4 cores CPU you use -j5, and if that CPU has Hyperthreading, then it would be -j9. I hope you get the picture.

    If all goes well, next step will be installing:

    6)
    Code:
    sudo make install
    6.1) This step is optional. It will create a .deb file, and install it.
    [code]sudo checkinstall[code]

    - The first thing you will get is this question:
    Code:
    Should I create a default set of package docs?  [y]:
    Answer it with [n] ( just press letter n )

    - Next will be some warrning, just ignore it and press ENTER
    - Now you have few options to pick.
    - Press number 1 and ENTER - in there write something like "pulseaudio from git" and press ENTER.
    - Now press number 3 and ENTER - there you will write a version like this: 6:5.0 and press ENTER again.
    - Now you can continue with creating a .deb package - so press ENTER.
    - Wait for it to finish, and now you have created and install .deb package of new pulseaudio you compiled.

    7) Now you can go to some system monitor and kill pulseaudio process, so the new version starts, or you can just logout and log back in.

    If you have any problems with this, just write it here, and I will help you with it.

    Oh, yea, sorry for that. I forgot to edit that part.
    I will fix it now.

    Edit: Fixed.

    P.S. BTW, that is the directory where I keep pulseaudio source.

    I thought that was the case but I did not want to assume.
    But still had no .configure file found so went into /home/usr(me)/pulseaudio
    and just doubled clicked "autogen.sh" and then the "configure" file was present.
    All went well after that

    I am glad. Thank you for remainding me about autogen.sh. I forgot about it, becouse you need to use it just for the first time, and I did that few years ago. I added that step into the howto.

    I still get the bash: /home/cpatrick08/pulseaudio/./configure: No such file or directory error messgae after step 4.1, nevermind had it in /home/cpatrick/source/pulseaudio and I changed the command, and now it works.

    That looks like a checkinstall error.
