No, there isn't (unless you use the trick suggested by sabayonino
), as there isn't in any current Linux distro, since most of the times they just split pulseaudio
libraries from the executable, thus pulseaudio
is always used, but the daemon isn't started.
That is basically the same approach suggested by sabayonino
, just in a "package manager assisted" way.
It is an unfortunate (in my humble opinion) fact that pulseaudio
has become a de facto standard for most desktop environments, your only chance of completely getting rid of it is using portage by disabling globally the pulseaudio USE flag. But that will involve heavy portage usage, it is not recommended for unexperienced users.
