Thank you for answers.
I know slitaz and i had it in virtual machine time ago.
I try to test it today in virtualbox or vmware player.
If you know something else...
I know that looking for distrowatch to can to find many distro, but there can not to find distro without pulseaudio and grub could to be present in packages but it is not possible to understand if the distro install only grub without other choice (fedora, for example, install only grub).
Why i hate pulseaudio.
I hate pulseaudio, grub2, gtk3 desktops (except gtk3 apps also if they got worse) because i consider these software an attempt to hinder user freedom.
Grub2 i can not install it more in root, pulseaudio install it in the system and it doesn't allow more to user to change and to choose; pulseaudio configuration fits everywhere and it is hard to remove and giving the sensation as if it is imposed; gtk3 is configured in binary file and it configure in dconf editor like horrid regedit of windows.
There would be plenty more to say but this is not the right post
All this i don't understand, and I don't recognize anymore true linux of a few years ago :-(
Bye
Francesco bat

Gentoo Linux allows you to set the "don't use PulseAudio" compiler flag, which is one of the reasons why I like it a lot. You could also try a BSD, they don't even have systemd.

Thank you!
I solved with SliTaz.
I installed it in other partition.
It had all requirements!
The problem that it's only one.
If i see in distrowatch i can search distro without systemd and there are various distro like PCLinuxOS and Slackware that i have.
The problem is Pulseaudio that in Distrowatch it is not possible to verify.
But it is obvious: pulseaudio is everywhere.
In PCLinuxOS i have alsamixer and no Pulseaudio, but aplay begin doesn't work anymore with new versions.
Now i installed Alsa version 2014 and it woks.
If i begin to have problems with old versions, i'll remove old alsa and pulseaudio from PCLinuxOS and Slackware and i'll install new alsa versions from source.
Now it is a war :-(
Bye

Hmm, guess you also want the distro to not have Avahi in its repos too...

Hey!
I didn't answered to the first post "ChuangTzu" because i considered it nonsense.
Then i saw the discussion continue and i preferred to clarify
It's obvious in Linux forum and in discussions of technology the word "war" is a metaphor.
I leave the war with dead and destruction in the history books and in TV news.
This is a Linux forum no a war forum, but I thought my message was understandable.

The only war i can predict in future is this :

I hope you tried Slackware-current. Its /extra/pure-alsa-system optional subsystem is exactly what you want -- all ALSA, no PulseAudio.
