i read firefox is going to drop alsa and go pulse only
https://news.slashdot.org/story/17/03/1 ... h-no-sound

it is supposedly abandon alsa completely in next releases

how would this affect us antix users?
is there any way to make firefox run on alsa
or would antix install pulse

from what i read, pulse is garbage and i despise it just like systemd, both being made by the same man

is there another firefox fork?
who will save us?

Chromium still works with alsa as far as I know.

Fixing Firefox is a Firefox problem. I do not see the developers being inclined to do that. The opposite < deal with it > is in the cards.

PS. Meta package installer has a systemd free pulse audio box.

Uder the audio section.
