0.3.55 breaks audio device request mechanism
- PipeWire version (
pipewire --version): 0.3.55
- Distribution and distribution version (
/etc/os-release): Fedora Linux 36 pipewire-0.3.55-2.fc36
- Desktop Environment: KDE
- Kernel version (
uname -r): 5.18.11-200.fc36.x86_64
Description of Problem: After updating to 0.3.55 pipewire maintains exclusive access to the audio device, even when Ardour or jackd requests to use the audio device.
How Reproducible: repeatable
Steps to Reproduce:
- Attempt to start Ardour using the ALSA backend or attempt to start jackd
Actual Results: Ardour error that the ALSA backend cannot be started, or jackd error starting with report that pipewire is using the audio device.
Expected Results: Pipewire will gracefully stop using the audio device so that audio applications can open for exclusive access
