Run Elluminate Live Webcasts under Fedora 14

I was up to listen some SANS webcasts when I found that my java installation on Fedora 14 is totally mute. Everything looked fine, but no sound. The root case was that SUN java I was using was supporting alsa, but not pulse audio. Solution was to use the library from openjdk and disable the alsa library.

#Pulse audio plugin for java
cp /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk- /usr/java/default/jre/lib/ext/
cp /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk- /usr/java/default/jre/lib/i386/
cp /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk- /usr/java/jre1.6.0_22/lib/i386/
cp /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk- /usr/java/jre1.6.0_22/lib/ext/

mv /usr/java/default/jre/lib/i386/libjsoundalsa.so /usr/java/default/jre/lib/i386/libjsoundalsa.so.bak

  1. Fantastic, Michal. Worked like a charm. BTW, I only used the first two cp lines and the mv line.
