Hi,

CentOS 6.8 comes with pulseaudio 0.9, but I want to use pulseaudio 6.0 or higher version, which is used on centso 7. How to build/install new pulseaudio on centso 6.8? Are there some dependency libs for pulseaudio? is there some rpm of pulseaudio 6.0 for CentOS 6.8?

Thanks Regards

andrew

    From your recent previous posts, you appear to want to have a CentOS 7
    environment on a CentOS 6 platform

    Is there any reason you can’t just use CentOS 7 ?

  • some applications are still run on CentOS 6.8. Therefore, CentOS 6.8 is preferred.

    Do you have applications that don’t run on CentOS 7 ?

  • I can build new packages in my custom directory, such as pulseaudio 6.0. Therefore, old application won’t use new installed packages. Why is there a contained non-CentOS environment?

    Specificlly to James’ point .. there are a whole bunch compat-* rpms in CentOS-7 to allow CentOS-6 things to run on CentOS-7

    Look at yum list compat-\*

    You can run many C6 workloads on C7.

    If that is not an option(the libraries you need are not available), a container or VM might be.

    The issues that you will run into building things yourself is that you also have to maintain all those packages through out the entire lifecycle to maintain security. It can certainly be done, but might no be ideal.
