Disabling pulseaudio

I checked out the section "2. Don’t purge PulseAudio". As for creating a
bug report of the cracking issue mentioned in the original post, I find it
difficult as I have only noticed the issue during playback of one
commercial DVD movie.

As for *Unexpected side effects, *you can use one or more instances of
audio mixer plugins on panel to control audio when using Alsa. I can output
audio by more than one application at a time even when I disable
Pulseaudio. I think I don't have another sound server in use. But yes, I
see side effects like unable to play audio by Totem, which issue I still
haven't been able to resolve, because I could not find a relevant setting
in its (simple) audio preferences.
