To permanently block installation of Pulseaudio.

When installing multimedia software pulseaudio can be pulled in as a dependency or as a recommends. This can be blocked by using APT pinning. Place a file in /etc/apt/preferences.d containing the following: -

                              Package: pulseaudio
                              Pin: release n=beowulf
                              Pin-Priority: -10

Any software you do not want installed can be blocked in a similar way.

I use a Perl script to generate an avoid-pkgName file.

Re: To permanently block installation of Pulseaudio.

... works until the next upgrade to chimaera.

And then murphy will predict that You forget to update the release entry before doing the update.

Re: To permanently block installation of Pulseaudio.

I have multiarch enabled and apt wants to install pulsaudio:i386.

$ sudo apt-get -s install pulseaudio
(...)
Note, selecting 'pulseaudio:i386' instead of 'pulseaudio'
The following additional packages will be installed:
  libaudit1:i386  (...)  pulseaudio-utils:i386 rtkit:i386

Is there a variant for multiarch?

Re: To permanently block installation of Pulseaudio.

Try

Package: pulseaudio:amd64
Pin: version *
Pin-Priority: -1

Package: pulseaudio:i386
Pin: version *
Pin-Priority: -1

-10 is bloat — P < 0 is all that is required tongue

EDIT: check with this after editing the preferences file:

# apt update
$ apt policy

EDIT2: this stanza might work by itself (I can't check atm):

Package: pulseaudio:*
Pin: version *
Pin-Priority: -1

EDIT3: confirmed, the above stanza is all that is needed to block all architectures of the package:

Pinned packages:
     pulseaudio -> 14.2-2 with priority -1
     pulseaudio:i386 -> 14.2-2 with priority -1

Pipewire is just as much of a cancer as pulseaudio, if not worse. It did not "magically solve" my popping issues, even after extensive configuration with media-session and wireplumber both.

I find ALSA to work out of the box on Devuan so long as you set the default card to the right one. And don't install from tasksel, I found out the hard way that I had that crap and it already messed everything up.

Re: To permanently block installation of Pulseaudio.

Pipewire is absolutely needed for video conferencing, at least in my system. Pure ALSA simply cannot do it.

Re: To permanently block installation of Pulseaudio.

I think that might be why it works well for conferencing,  because the software using it, intentionally has more support for pipewire...

But isn't it the other way around? PipeWire provides the API needed to route sound correctly but ALSA has no such functionality (AFAIK).

I use flatpaks so I at least need one or the other and I get unstoppable popping with both Pipewire and Pulseaudio.

Re: To permanently block installation of Pulseaudio.

hello,
on my newer laptops the sound is very low;
used to uninstall pulseaudio and use only alsa on older laptops; the sound was better, somehow.
is it possible to get with withs "pipewire" better soundstage?
on the same newer laptops, with windows (7 or10) the sound is MUCH better!

AFAIK, its not possible in Chimaera because pipewire replacing pulseaudio uses some systemd magic, at least in the wiki page for it.

I for one notice no difference at all from either, they serve a similar purpose. If apulse worked with flatpaks I would gladly get rid of pulseaudio/pipewire.

Re: To permanently block installation of Pulseaudio.

Audio-wise there is nothing PulseAudio or PipeWire can do which ALSA can't, they totally depend on it; the potentiality of PA and PW are limited by ALSA's.

PA and PW act as sound-servers and wish to route every audio instance through (whichever chosen) them (including OSSs btw), so to have a uniformed interface/framework for users as well as APIs for programmers' software to interact with. Dealing (users) with multiple audio-devices, concurrent I/O audio events, various and different audio libraries simultaneously, various frequencies ... and so on; this is not always easy when interacting 'directly' with ALSA as it may involve creating and/or editing configuration files which may end up very complex, say ~,asoundrc; PA (I guess) was an effort to address this moving forwards towards user-friendliness and, as mentioned, consistency.

For me ALSA without any intermediate layer works well; however, as things has evolved, more and more software are written expecting a sound-server dealing with the various applications' audio-instances in mind, hence decrease in support for ALSA 'only'. APulse seems to work alright though(?).

As I used to work on and with DAWs, for me, therefore! smile, PA (and probably PW which I don't know) is just a bloody potter about interfering (JACK) and drawing resources from the system. I ditched PA early on so I should be a bit humble with regard the present status (all though not quite), but however you look at it, it basically is a layer which provides no extra potential, just an easier configuration and management path.

I actually realized something... I dislike his software, yes. But I don't hate him, redhat however, is the crux of the issue and even then I always hate them.

Sometimes emotions in me burst out, but in general, if there is ever a reason to hate out of any of these people, its people like the redhat leaders who are willing to destroy everything around them by bloating software nonstop for profit, etc...

This all being said, feel nothing but annoyance towards them right now. My simple point is this is part of a much larger problem which has not been fixed yet.

Its not just poettering, this goes well beyond him.

Microsoft, Google, Redhat, corporations as evil as them, are run by the core problem, which is prideful people who only feed good if they are persuing their greed and successfully annoying and in some cases harming people in general.

So yeah, don't care in either direction much about Poettering. Yes he is an ass, but nothing compared to the people above him.

He didn't get this freedom to abuse his power without the people above him.

Btw,  there is a better solution to the whole alsa situation the pulseaudio or pipewire.

Its called sndio.

btw,  jwmkit has some features to fix this issue.  Works nicely, although you still need alsa-utils  installed even if its not online while sndio is and alsa-sndio.

wink

Sndio can do per application stream which alsa cannot ever do on its own last I checked.

Although maybe this has changed or isn't true?

But yeah,  never knew how to do it nor do I currently.

sndio is a good audio server.  Although you must use Daedalus/Bookworm if you want to use sndio because the package is way out of date in early versions of Devuan/Debian.

Also because of this JWMKit's sndio functionality has never been tested on Devu(bi)an.  So I can't promise it works, but it does works well on other distros.  I'll have to experiment with it when I have a chance.

Well, if I had to guess, it isn't up to date on devuan, because there isn't enough interest. Pulseaudio/pipewire has more currently.

Talk about feed the blob...

Aka, sndio can do the same thing thanks to you.  If people didn't always pick the easy way, these bloated alternatives, like the stuff redhat provides, would have never succeeded.

You don't feed a bully, you cut them off and don't let them push you around.

When I said blob, I was though referring to the size like that old cheesy movie would have defined it as.

Re: To permanently block installation of Pulseaudio.

No mention in this thread of other packages that come from PulseAudio's source package, e.g. libpulse0, pulseaudio-utils, and others.

Blocking/pinning pulseaudio* and libpulse* would handle them all, but there appears to be a lot of software that depends on libpulse0 package... :/

Re: To permanently block installation of Pulseaudio.

is it not that there is now a new "audio system" that is being developed or used instead of pulseaudio?
pipewire or similar? if yes,
will that come also to devuan i am asking myself?
i§d gladly use "alsa-only" as long as it keeps getting easier on switching sound-sources, which has been always difficult to cumbersome to implement everytime i tried.

"depends" isn't the right word(s), because it works without it on other distros and/or operating systems.

"Forced to have" is more accurate due to the nature of bloatware that keeps getting added over and over again.

Pipewire and pulseaudio are good things to block.

alsasound was always an approach I preferred back then when I used devuan alot.

Re: To permanently block installation of Pulseaudio.

Since "depends" is the technical term that the package manager uses, it can't not be a right word, even if there might also be other more descriptive ones.

*shrug*

Whatever it's called, it would be nice to have a generalized list of packages to avoid, (along with reasons why, how, what the alternatives are, etc).

Since "depends" is the technical term that the package manager uses, it can't not be a right word, even if there might also be other more descriptive ones.

*shrug*

Whatever it's called, it would be nice to have a generalized list of packages to avoid, (along with reasons why, how, what the alternatives are, etc).

My point was that debian adds it as a dependency for their own reasons, reasons that aren't related to users wanting it or needing it.

Aka, it doesn't  need to depend is a bettr way to say it.

They have ulterior motives.
