Does anyone know about a decent manual or howto on pulseaudio? I mean something that explains the basics, its mechanism etc, not only some short instructions if want achieve this type this or similar. I checked pulseaudio wiki web page (http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/PulseAudio/Documentation/) but it is really lacking substantial information. Many of the links/pages are simply empty. I also tried to read command line syntax as the link http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/PulseAudio/Documentation/User/CLI/ suggests but could not find the manual on my opensuse (12.2) system.
man pulse-cli-syntax
No manual entry for pulse-cli-syntax

I would like to do so "complex" things such as recording and listening to a stream so that the recording volume should not be altered by changing the listening volume (in other terms the volumes for listening and for recording should be independent.) Furthermore I don't know how to use pavucontrol. How and why the the different volume settings alter each other? Why is it that when I move the slider to the left (decrease volume) there is no audible volume difference until a point, but after that point there is a dramatic volume decrease?

Thanks for any help,
