Re: Does this reminds you of systemd?

I always do a minimal installation and never get any package with "pulse" in the name.
Only libpulse0 is on my final-system, cause mpv and ffmpeg need it.

apt-cache rdepends *pulse*

let you see all packages wich are depending on packages with "pulse" in the name.

So do I, I use IceWM

I got 2 boxes, and installed Devuan on both, the 64 bit one with (XFS) and the 32 bit with (ext 4).
The 64 bit gave me Pulse audio by default, and the 32 bit, ALSA.

Now I can't get rid of pulseaudio. I DID NOT INSTALL PULSEAUDIO!!

Try using aptitude. It may give you some other options, some of which may allow you to get rid of pulseaudio and pulseaudio-utils.

Re: Does this reminds you of systemd?

Thank you guys. I finally did it.

Installed synaptic and uninstalled pulseaudio, pulseaudio-tools and pulseaudio-utils which in turn dragged a bunch of others. Went to the terminal and got my beloved alsamixer big_smile Happy camper! Sound is great.

Re: Does this reminds you of systemd?

  dpkg -r --force-depends pulse-audio 

You could always force it but if you have dependencies. Aptitude will complain about unmet dependencies. So I don't recommend this

apt purge pulse-audio should remove most of it.
The cookie and a few folders will get left behind though. Just thought I'd mention it leaves a few files if you want to clean up a bit.

Re: Does this reminds you of systemd?

Pshshshshsaudio and SystemD were made by the same person. Purge pulseaudio first (apt-get purge), then reinstall necessary packages and avoid pulseaudio in dependencies. Some of packages require pulseaudio libraries without pulseaudio itself. You can ignore that packages.
