How to remove Pulseaudio
« on: 19. January 2016, 00:25:34 »
Hi there,
Nice release, I believe I'm gonna give a try very soon. Right now I'm using the new JWM version (very nice, still learnig a few things, because I'm coming from a Lubuntu).

But I would like to ask one thing: is there a simple way to disable pulseaudio?

Because my old notebook (a pretty crappy one) is very low powered, and save this little ram and cpu from pulseaudio would be a nice trick.

This thread may be of some use:

I don't use Pulse (even when I was using systemd), I much prefer ALSA. Some need Pulse due to their sophisticated demands.

If you need more info on ALSA this page may assist:

The ultimate tyranny in a society is not control
by martial law. It is control by the psychological
manipulation of consciousness, through which reality
is defined so that those who exist within do not even
realize that they are in prison.

Oh, thanks, I'm gonna give a look, but in the end, I'm giving a try to pulseaudio this time (but I'm already finding issues, like the volume going up and down too fast).

And also thanks (I guess, eheh) to the moderators that created this topic for me. I asked this question in the main topic, but I believe the moderators are right and this can be an useful thing to other people to see.
