Xpra: Ticket #267: CentOS 6.3 pulseaudio issues with 0.8.5

With a clean CentOS 6.3 OS (running a yum localinstall cold) I launched xpra- it lasted nearly 2 seconds before pulseaudio crashed.

  1. I launched it with dbus-launch xpra --no-daemon --bind-tcp= --start-child=xterm start :11

The OS responded with:

Error running "xauth add :11 MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 084bd971af569928976de3134a0d9446": [Errno 2] No such file or directory

And just shy of 2 seconds later, it added:

2013-02-19 18:04:55,087 Warning: pulseaudio has terminated. Either fix the pulseaudio command line or use --no-pulseaudio to avoid this warning.

(Trying to connect anyway leads to a timeout error, whether attempted from a Windows cmd line or with a launcher GUI)

Wed, 20 Feb 2013 02:36:03 GMT - Antoine Martin: status changed; resolution set

From your own output:

/bin/sh: pulseaudio: command not found


/bin/sh: xterm: command not found

You are trying to execute commands that are not installed - all the log messages are correct.
