I mean, PulseAudio is always flawless... right?

Why yes, it is! See, sometimes we agree! ;)

cd /var/adm/packages ls -l Pulse* ls: cannot access Pulse*: No such file or directory ls -l pulse* ls: cannot access pulse*: No such file or directory

I fail to see the problem. :)

To be fair, I haven't checked on my 14.0 machine.

I'm sure PulseAudio has it's advantages, but I'm just as glad not to deal with it on my day to day machine.

Never had any problems with Pulse Audio. Now Jack, on the other hand, has been nothing but trouble.

I dont know Jack :) but Pulse has never ever ever ever worked for me as I use old Soundblaster 5.1 cards and the alsa emu10k driver just doesnt work properly with pulseaudio but is fine under alsa.

Worst offender is Skype but the "tsched=0" hack fixes it but then that causes Wine's alsa only driver to screw up so best option for a solution in both cases is simply to remove pulseaudio if you can.

Rumour has it that the Wine folks are working on a specific pulseaudio driver which once they get working means I can re-instate Pulseaudio and just use the tsched hack for Skype.
