On Fedora I have used the following ever since pulseaudio first 
appeared. SUSE would be similar, although the packages and naming is 
likely different. Heed the warning, at least on Fedora: the things have 
their DNA intertwined.

  echo "         Remove pulse audio files mythtv does not need"
  echo "         Do NOT use 'remove pulseaudio*' as this will remove"
  echo "         pulseaudio-libs which killing gdm and other programs."
  echo ""
  yum -y remove pulseaudio alsa-plugins-pulseaudio \
         pavucontrol pulseaudio-utils pulseaudio-libs-zeroconf \
         gstreamer-plugins-pulse pulseaudio-core-libs \
         pulseaudio-libs-devel pulseaudio-module-zeroconf
  echo ""
  rm -rf /etc/pulse*
  rm -rf /root/.pulse*
  rm -rf /home/mythtv/.pulse*
