Restarting Pulseaudio

From time to time, even in Linux, programs crash or don’t behave as expected :)

Today, I’ve had a weird problem with the audio on my iMac (white, 21′): the audio wasn’t working on the headphones.

Nothing that a pulseaudio restart cannot solve :)

To restart it, you just need a console and type:

esteve@imac:~$ pulseaudio -k
esteve@imac:~$ pulseaudio -D

The first line kills the server, and the second one starts it again. No “sudo” is necessary !
