I’ve tested today for the first time Void Linux. I am looking for a systemd/pulse audio free distro.
I’ve installed Mate DE but it seems to depend on pulseaudio. As I tried to remove it, I got :
xbps-remove pulseaudio alsa-plugins-pulseaudio-1.1.6_1 mate-settings-daemon-1.20.1_1
mate-settings-daemon-1.20.1_1 (remove) breaks installed pkg `mate-1.20.0_1’
mate-settings-daemon-1.20.1_1 (remove) breaks installed pkg `mate-control-center-1.20.2_1’
I didn’t remove the mate package…
The mate-settings-daemon package seems to be the link between Mate and PA.
Is there a possibility for the package maintainer to compile it without PA ? Is Alsa supported by Mate ?
