[patch] startBristol process directly use sound device.
Status in “monobristol” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “monobristol” source package in Maverick:
Binary package hint: monobristol
I think monobristol should open startBristol process with "-audiodev default" option.
Current version of startBristol directly opens sound device (hw(0,0)) without this option, not via PulseAudio. With "-audiodev default" option, startbristol opens default pcm device of ALSA. It's PulseAudio. Then we can see bristol pcm output in gnome-sound window. This is due to ALSA plugin of PulseAudio.
In my opinion, application's direct access to sound device is not good. If one application directly use the sound device, the other application cannot use it and there is no possibility to mix sounds from different appications.
To solve this issue, I attach 03_audiodev.patch.
Thanks to include my patch #660627 and It's my glad if you include this audiodev patch to distributed package.
