How do I completely remove pulseaudio? I've been trying to make it work for the past couple days and nothing seems to work properly with it, or if they work, the next time I boot up they don't again.

add -pulseaudio to your USE flags in make.conf. Recompile everything that was built with pulseaudio support:
Code:
emerge -uDNavt world
to remove the pulse audio dependencies from the packages.
Remove pulseaudio:
Code:
 emerge -C pulseaudio

Don't forget to restore /etc/asound.conf if you have modified it.

Funny. I've also removed pulseaudio yesterday after failing to configure it. Looks like there's some error in configuration guides :)
