Ability to cleanly remove pulseaudio

Postby light0 on Sat Jan 26, 2013 6:36 am

Quite a lot of users do not want pulseaudio for various reasons. On my older Nforce 2 system, pulseaudio crumbles trying to output digital and analogue at the same time, giving terrible lag and audio sync problems.

There has been a guide on how to remove pulseaudio created here: viewtopic.php?f=197&t=60485&p=679133

But following this seems like a hack and I feel it would be nice to have an elegant solution to removing pulseaudio. For example, in following the above approach, whilst it works, it leaves behind various pulse packages e.g. libpulse0, libpulsedsp and libpulse-mainloop-glib0. It seems that these packages cannot be removed without removing the entire system.
