Basic steps to setup pulseaudio (DisplayPort output) in Linux

Here is some basic steps (and reminder to self):1. install pulseaudio-utils
# yum install pulseaudio-utils
2. Check which output to can be use:
# pactl list

Note:
** find the output you need, the 1 I am outputing is "output:hdmi-stereo-extra2+input:analog-stereo"
** you might need to start "pulseaudio -D"

3. Set the default output:
# pactl set-card-profile 0 output:hdmi-stereo-extra2+input:analog-stereo

4. To make the changes permanent, append/insert/edit /etc/pulse/default.pa:
set-card-profile 0 output:hdmi-stereo-extra2+input:analog-stereo

And this should be able to play sound output to DisplayPort.
