Is there a Linux Distribution with no Pulseaudio ?

I've had nothing but trouble with Pulseaudio in Fedora 14.
I had managed to get rid of it in Fedora 10 with the command:
su -c "yum remove alsa-plugins-pulseaudio pulseaudio"
I just don't want to have to deal with Pulseaudio anymore.
It does not like my sound card and gets in the way.
Is there a Linux distribution that does not use Pulseaudio ?

i am guessing that this is "some kind" of laptop? or netbook ? or tablet ?

pulse is very mature now , unlike back in fedora 8( or was it 6 ?) when it was first introduced .

build LFS or a Slack build or Arch

include as much or as little as you want .

I have Arch running on a 11 year old desktop and it boots in 1/2 the time as a NEW 64 bit box with 8 gig ram running suse 11.3

Pulse audio also works fine on that box .

Distrowatch tracks pulseaudio in distros. If you go to the page for a distro you find interesting, select "all tracked packages", and click "refresh", you can see if pulseaudio is installed.
