I purged pulseaudio and it purged other stuff too :-
$ sudo aptitude purge pulseaudio
[sudo] password for shirish:

Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?] Y
I have KDE also hence switched to KDE and then purged pulseaudio
(hence also removing all that other stuff, esp. GNOME and GNOME core).
On rebooting something called xwud on KDE tells me this :-
KDE detected that one or more devices were removed. Do you want KDE to
permanently forget about these devices :-
This is the list of devices KDE thinks can be removed
. Output : HDA Intel, VT1705 Analog (Default Audio Device).
when I tried doing :-
~$ aplay -D pulse /usr/share/sounds/startup3.wav
ALSA lib pulse.c:243:(pulse_connect) PulseAudio: Unable to connect:
aplay: main:682: audio open error: Connection refused
I got the above error.
Looking forward to ideas.
