I know alsasound in init.d is to save/restore the volume info.

If I use pulseaudio, can I delete alsasound from the rc-list?
Or in other words, does pa use alsa to save volume info or have it's own way?


I think pa should have its own way, because pa has more functions on volume control than alsa (per app/dev volume).
but where does it save to? how does pa use it? I failed to find relative doc on web.

don't think so, afiak, PA is a layer between alsa and the userspace program, disabling alsa will disable PA.

note that I'm not that sure I'm right.
