raymac46 Posted February 4 Share Posted February 4 (edited) In Debian Testing, the newer sound server Pipewire has been introduced. This takes over from Pulse Audio but keeps Pulse Audio on the system and acts as its sound server. Serving the server? When I did the latest upgrades I found that packages gnome and gnome-core were being held back, not upgraded. After some searching I discovered that the latest version of GNOME is now incompatible with Pulse Audio. The solution is to install the package pipewire-audio which puts in direct support for ALSA and purges Pulse Audio from the system. After a reboot you can then upgrade gnome and gnome-core and sound still works. So for all you Pulse Audio haters it is now possible to get rid of it for good.
