init and pulseaudio



Why would the command

    /etc/init.d/pulseaudio start

work, whereas the command

    service pulseaudio start

produces an X11 error "XOpenDisplay() failed" as seen below?

I'm baffled. Granted, I hacked /etc/init.d/pulseaudio myself, but
how could it produce such different results?

Reik

PS: the reason I want to have pulseaudio as a service is that I don't
use gnome or kde, and hence have no simple way of starting pulseaudio
automatically when a session starts.
