Description Tanu Kaskinen 2015-01-27 18:12:30 UTC
By default sysconfdir is /usr/local/etc, which causes PulseAudio to fail to find the machine-id. If ${sysconfdir}/machine-id is found, it should be used, but I think it would be good to fall back to /etc/machine-id if ${sysconfdir}/machine-id is not found.

add fallbacks to /etc/machine-id and /var/lib/dbus/machine-id

This is fixed now in the "next" branch.
