I thought deleting PulseAudio *was* dealing with it. ;-)
For most people PA is a solution in search of a problem, we have a few inputs, a
single sound card (or card + built in), and some speakers. Software mixing,
bizarre interraction with alsa requiring use of multiple mixers, and the ability
to send output to speakers on other planets are not requirements for most people.
It's a great tool which should be totally optional unless you feel the need.
Linux sound used to work until PA became inflicted on users by default.
I worked hard not to be too negative in this post.
