I have recently installed FC10 x86_64 and have it to the most part setup how I want it now.
My problem is I have no need for pulseaudio and I am trying to get rid of some of this extra type of software from my setup. I have an Audigy2 ZS wich does it's own hardware mixing in Linux and this is the only feature in Pulseaudio that I would be interested in if I didn't have it already.
Using the Add/Remove Software tool in FC10 and doing a search for Pulseaudio pulls up several things. Naturally I would just uncheck all the pulseaudio stuff that is installed and hit apply.
But when I hit apply... I notice it wants to also remove important parts of FC10 installation.
Stuff like gdm and gnome-panel are going to get removed. Well, lol, obviously this is not desired.
So, I am here asking how the heck do I remove pulseaudio and retain everything else?
Just a very simple killall -9 pulseaudio fixed all my video (mouse curser),audio stuttering issues in my games, dvd's, music playback.
I wouldn't have realized pulseaudio could have created the video issue with the mouse and in my games.... Seems it still needs a bit of work for cards with their own hardware mixing so it doesn't create these types of issues.
I did not see a pulseaudio options in the services options. How do I go about just stopping it from even starting up upon a fresh boot?
Ok, just went through and tested everything on my machine audio and video wise. All video playback or rendering is the way it is supposed to be. All audio playback and recording is now the way it is supposed to be. I can now use TeamSpeak with any game and have audio from both at the same time. Pulseaudio devs should really consider a pass through or auto-detect script for cards that can play multiple sounds at once from different sources. As pulseaudio under this circumstance just makes things 100x harder to use and get setup properly.
And for my Final edit of this post.
Goto System -> Preferences -> personal -> Sessions
Scroll down to where it says Pulseaudio Sound System. Uncheck it and all the pulseaudio problems upon a reboot go away.
