vdev and pulse

This is an advisory note if you happen to use pulseaudio and want to trial vdev.

The issue is that pulseaudio has a builtin dependency on udev via its module (e.g. /usr/lib/pulse-7.1/modules/, and the associated stanza in /etc/pulse/, perhaps at lines 53-60:

### Automatically load driver modules depending on the hardware available
load-module module-udev-detect
### Use the static hardware detection module (for systems that lack udev support)
load-module module-detect

You should thus rename or remove, or make the stanza be just:

load-module module-detect

Either way should be enough to keep sound working.

Re: vdev and pulse

Interesting note on pulseaudio from debian

pulseaudio (11.1-2) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Since this version, pulseaudio disables autospawn by default on linux
    systems, and replaces that with systemd socket activation. If you are not
    using systemd, then please edit or remove
    to reenable it.

In ceres (ascii and jessie too?), I am using the Pulse Audio Volume Control to control volume within the xfce panel.  This broke after a recent update and I had to follow the directive above to get it working again.
