How Can I remove PulseAudio


Salutations

I want alsa to be the default sound manager and not pulseaudio. Is there an easy way to do this without messing up the system?

Thanks,

Vinny

You have marked this solved just minutes after opening the thread. Did you find a solution?

If looking for help you will need to tell us the distribution and version at the very least.

Please see the Site FAQ for guidance in asking questions and general forum participation.

Before you start removing packages keep in mind that doing so could wreck havoc on the whole system.

A lot of the distributions now do not use alsa anymore they use pulseaudio so removing it could hose your sound all together.
