I have stated that I use Pulse because ALSA fails to utilize more then one sound app.
With ALSA if I watch a youtube vid in firerfox and soon open my music player the music player wont work unless I close off firefox.
so I close off firefox but sometimes flash hangs the sound device hostage and I have to log out or kill something to make sure ALSA is freed up.
My sound works fine, but apps are choosing pulse and alsa, I need to get a default sound, I got confused since the config files are not where the wiki says and thought I should ask for help.I think I need to make pulse default, just no idea how to do that and the config files seem to be missing.
I think I have Alsa driver installed. Pulse not working may be I dont have it installed. Not sure If I can run Pulse and Alsa. I had to configure each application prior to work which use pulse.(SMplayer by default select pulse. I had to change that)
In fact those are not drivers but packages or applications.Pulse is running on top of alsa.You can't run pulse without alsa.You can run alsa without pulse, but pulse for instance allows you to mix several sound streams for several applications.
