It sounds like you tried something like 'yum remove pulse*'. But alsa
(or at least fedora) always needs some pulse libraries.
On Fedora, the following works:
echo " Now remove pulse audio files mythtv does not need"
echo " Do NOT use 'remove pulseaudio*' as this will remove
echo " which will kill gdm and other core programs."
yum -y remove pulseaudio alsa-plugins-pulseaudio pavucontrol \
pulseaudio-utils gstreamer-plugins-pulse \
If that is what you did, then you should re-install pulse, (to make suer
all the proper bits are there) and then remove the unwanted bits, as
above. I doubt the program names differ too greatly under Ubuntu etc. if
that is what you are using.
(Now apparently you *can* run myth under pulseaudio...but then some
people run marathons *for pleasure*....Me, I sail for fun: Samuel
Johnson wrote something to the effect of "Whoever would go to sea for
pleasure, would go to hell for a holiday". Guess he got sea-sick.
Pulseaudio has that effect on me...)
I use 'ALSA:default' for output but this is, of course, hardware
dependent. Input settings depend upon the tuner type. Most of the output
settings are about 3 or 4 pages into Setup ->Setup ->General in
Please let me know if anything I say offends you.
I may wish to offend you again in the future.
