11 This is unecessarily restrictive to force the user to choose between
12 pipewire and pulseaudio for the sound server. It is possible (I am
13 running it now), and should be possible for gentoo to have both
14 installed simultaneously and run one or the other at any given time,
15 through configuration files.
17 [I think the only patch that is required is for
18 alsa-plugins/pulse/conf_pulse.c: (conf_pulse_hook_load_if_running)
19 which can be taught to check if the pipewire daemon is running and
20 quit that particular module. but it is not pipewire aware yet]
