Pulseaudio + PS4 controller
razing32 commented on 10 November 2018 at 11:50 pm UTC

Recently have an odd issue.
Currently on Linux debian 4.18.0-2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.18.10-2 (2018-11-02) x86_64 GNU/Linux
When i plug in a PS4 controller or when i boot with it plugged in , pulse audio goes nuts and my computer loses connection to pulse server.
It was working before when i was on Debian Stable.

Also as a side note , my Steam Controller stopped being detected as a controller . It's only working half way.

Anyone see an issue like this before ?
Any idea where i should look first ? Am i missing a module in kernel for these controllers ? A permission issue on my user ? Is pulse mis configured ?

Pulseaudio is buggy and takes cpu resources. Remove it and use Alsa and qasmixer.
