[pulseaudio-discuss] ALSA with Pulseaudio in Debian Etch

Hey, I was wondering if someone could help me out here. I am running Debian
Etch with kernel 2.6.18-4-386.
My problem is that after installing and starting Pulseaudio I cannot run any
ALSA applications. When I go to "Gstreamer Properties" and select ALSA it
doesn't work, but ALSA does work when I am not running Pulseaudio.
Sound in general does work when I use Pulseaudio, I just have to force some
applications to use Pulseaudio.
I am still using all of the default configuration files, I have not changed
I added the ./asoundrc file specified in the "Perfect Setup" page but that
seems to have no affect.
However, when I try the configuration file from the Gentoo Linux ALSA Wiki
for Pulseaudio as my /etc/pulse/default.pa, then everything works. I can use
ALSA with Pulseaudio. This is because the Gentoo configuration files sets
the default ALSA device as "dmix" This is obviously unnecessary if you're
using Pulseaudio. I don't want to take the performance hit of using dmix
with Pulseaudio because I want the speed.
So, I go back to the default configuration file.
Anyway, I guess I need some assistance in getting a good Pulseaudio
configuration for my system. If you would like anymore information, please
feel free to drop me a line.!!
Thanks for your help in Advance!!!
