Oh, and since you seem to hate PA really that much: just disable it!
Just remove alsa-plugins-pulseaudio and you have it back, your naked
No, we'd just like it to be usable in other contexts than laptops. We
don't need another NM-like story. Especially since Fedora would like
to make it mandatory (for very good reasons too).
An example of real use I have at home:
- Main desktop machine is connected to speakers through normal wires
and to the living room ac3/dts through toslink
- Both the GF & I are usually logged on that machine, her with KDE on
Ctrl-Alt-F7 and me with fvwm2 on Ctrl-Alt-F8. Adding pulseaudio -D in
my startup wouldn't be a problem.
- User switching, as it is, is just C-A-F7/C-A-F8
- Additionally, we often ssh to the machine from our laptops to start
music using xmms/audacious/mplayer sending on spdif to hear it in
the living room. Files are on the desktop machine, so we'd rather
do X than nfs+pcm over the wifi.
Can PA do that? Can PA be modified to support that?
