ABCDE in Crux

After my OS update to Crux 3.6 (3.6.1 to be precise) I cleaned non-main (core, opt, xorg) packages. One of the side effects is that I lost abcde. It was removed from the contrib collection, because of inactive maintainer. Along abcde, the cd-discid was also deleted from the same reason. I decided to add them to my port collections (https://wawrzek.name/crux/repo/). I started from the old contrib ports. Looking at sources I noticed that there is a recent patch for cd-discid. I included it into my port. I also encounter problems in running abcde with my config. There were missing musicbrainz Perl modules, so I added ports for them as well.

Pulse and default sound card

For some reason PulseAudio wants to send sounds from my computer to the HDMI monitor, with rather crappy speakers, rather than to my headphones.

To stop it I set up a default output by editing /etc/pulse/default.pa. In my case the right configuration was:

set-default-sink alsa_output.pci-0000_38_00.6.analog-stereo
