View Full Version : How to disabe pulseaudio?

I don't want to use pulseaudio. with fedora 8 I edited the line in /etc/alsa/alsa.conf which loads the pulseaudio profile and unchecked the esd option in gnome sound preferences and that was it.
But now with fedora 9 the process "pulseaudio" seems to be loaded on every login.
how can i stop pulseaudio from being run each time i log in?

yum remove pulseaudio* paman padevchooser --exclude=pulseaudio-libs

Problem solved.

yeah i meant something that just disables it from running, but i guess that's the only option.

No that is NOT the only option.

pulse-audio is started by the gnome session manager (trace the pids in "ps").
So select "System->Preferences->Personal->Sessions"
In the "Startup Programs" tab DEselect the "Pulse Audio Management".

You need to deselect Pulse per-user.

that's the problem... i don't have nothing to uncheck.
i would have figured it pretty quickly if there was.
