can you clarify that you are talking about pulseaudio and not about libpulse?
# pacman -Rss pulseaudio checking dependencies... error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies) :: gnome-settings-daemon: requires pulseaudio :: pulseaudio-alsa: requires pulseaudio
ok then, gnome requires pulseaudio. The only way to get rid of pulseaudio is to get rid of gnome.
At the moment only GDM is installed, not GNOME.
I had GNOME3 installed for Debian and 2 dummy packages solved all issues, since GNOME3 doesn't need PA, just some "my computer should be a toy, instead of a tool" tasks need PA.
Okay, if the policy of Arch Linux is to force people to install unneeded stuff, than it simply isn't the distro I should use.
hey troll, before trowing such arguments i suggest to look at our gdm version and debian version.
gdm 3.2 requires gnome-settings-daemon and all the crap.
debian has gdm 3.0 which doesn't require.
not to mention that only couples of days ago debian finished gnome 3.2.
