Remove pulseaudio from default installation again
Since having pulseaudio again activated as default not one of the systems that I have installed 11.4 had a working audio system. Remove pulse from the default installation again as it does nothing but break working installations. This has been verified across multiple sound cards and setups. Don't get rid of the pulseaudio packages, just take them out of the default installation pattern.
Pulse audio is supposed to deliver several high level features like network transparency, etc. Most users do not need those features so for them pulse just add another layer of complexity. It is necessary to install several libraries to gain complete control of the sound system (the same control that those users have since years through alsa and kmix, for example), and that for someone who only need to listen his/her
local music collection is too much.
Default systems must be
simple , with the ability to add (also in a simple way) the advanced features. Unless some "patterns" are set to use during install (one for "normal" users who do not need pulse, other for those who want it out of the box) to NOT force new users to face the more complex scheme (i.e., to not install pulse by default but leave it as a choice) is a good solution.

You can add different relations here, for example duplicate features, obs projects, urls...
To embedd an image you can simply upload it to paste.opensuse.org and add a relation to its raw url.
