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  module-udev-detect.so (e.g. /usr/lib/pulse-7.1/modules/module-udev-detect.so), and the associated stanza in /etc/pulse/default.pa, perhaps at lines 53-60:

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

You should thus rename or remove module-udev-detect.so, 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
    /etc/pulse/client.conf.d/00-disable-autospawn.conf
    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.
