Just to let y'all know that the Puppy crew have got this one licked..!
Our browser 'handyman', OscarTalks, has compiled a PulseAudio 'aPulse' .pet package which gets everything up-and-running. You can find the .pets as follows:-
Install FF52, then install the 'aPulse' package at the same time, before starting FireFox.....then let 'er rip. I'm listening to RadioTunes in 32-bit Slacko 560 right now, having just watched one of my video tutes on YouTube. Sound's working fine everywhere it should.
Give this combo a try in Tahrpup, and let me know how you get on with it. I'm not a FireFox user, as y'all know by now, but I did give this a test run before posting the links to make sure it all works. Take my advice, though, and leave Chromium where it is; it never hurts to have multiple browsers in place!
Puppians are taking the pragmatic view, here; Mozilla have made it plain they're not going to change their policy towards ALSA, so there's absolutely no point in flooding the Mozilla blogs/forums/newsletters/developers forums with loads & loads of loud, vociferous complaints. It's better simply to work with/around it, rather than waste energy moaning about it.....
