Using "fedpkg co" command, I get missing repository for: pulseaudio-libs.git


When running command: fedpkg co -a pulseaudio-libs, I get the error:

fatal: repository ‘’ not found

I am, however, able to check out: pulseaudio even though: pulseaudio-libs fails.

Perhaps, due to the data center move, some rpms
are still missing from the git repo.

Is it anticipated that missing rpms will soon be available?

Is there an alternate git repo that would have fedpkg compatible rpms?

I’m trying to fix a sound error:

Running amixer: results in the error:
ALSA lib pulse.c:242:(pulse_connect) PulseAudio: Unable to connect: Connection refused

I’m guessing that pulse.c is in pulseaudio-libs

If needed, I’ll provide more sound error details in a seperate post.

Thanks much,


I think that the rpm package pulseaudio-libs is built starting from pulseaudio.spec (what is the correct terminology? Subpackage?) that is in the pulseaudio repository.

It is like httpd-devel (or httpd-manual): there isn’t a git repository for them, but these RPMs, together with httpd, are built on top of the same httpd.spec file, that is in the httpd git repository.

@alciregi is right, pulseadio-libs is a subpackage of pulseaudio and therefore does not have it’s own repo.
Each repository on represents one source RPM package. But often multiple binary packages are build from one source package, so the user can for example install a library without the associated application etc.

But i"m not sure what you’re trying to do here*. Building the package yourself is unlikely to fix your problem - you’d just end up with the same package as in the repositories, but built locally.

*Apart from just trying stuff out - I fully support that :slight_smile:.

RE: [Using “fedpkg co” command, I get missing repository for: pulseaudio-libs.git]

Thanks much for your help @alciregi and @lcts

I have a complete build log for pulseaudio.git
I’m looking closer at the log file for: pulse.c which output the error:
“ALSA lib pulse.c:242:(pulse_connect) PulseAudio: Unable to connect: Connection refused”

If I find pulse.c, I’ll look through the source code for the error.

Thanks again for your help,
