Hi, I am running a virgin installation 2017-04-10-raspbian-jessie.img on a Pi Zero W.
[Full details below, but TL:DR is: why the clicks? and why must I stop pulseaudio?]
I followed the instructions on the Github page, and then installed VLC as per Steps 1 and 2 on the /tutorial/tanya/say-anything-with-a-speaker-phat webpage
I could only get any sounds if I followed the advice in the support topic "Speaker PHAT no sound or light"
that is, to enter “sudo systemctl stop pulseaudio” at the command line.
At all times, at the end of the boot process, the speaker emits a loud click. When I play the bilge tank tune, a rapid double-click sound is emitted before and after the tune.
- Why should I need to stop pulseaudio, when the GIT Readme says, (under Uninstalling)
“And if you want pulseaudio back (if you’re using Raspbian < Stretch) you can (if it exists):
sudo mv /etc/xdg/autostart/pulseaudio.disabled /etc/xdg/autostart/pulseaudio.desktop”
(Do I need to be running a higher version?)
- How do I stop the dratted clicks?
