Description ta2002 2012-05-22 00:05:46 UTC
From their mail list:

This would involve adding a --disable-pulseaudio option to, modifying the corresponding files,
and hiding the call to "new PulseLayer" in audiolayer.cpp
with an #ifdef. Patches welcome.

I would try to make such a patch myself, but I am afraid it
is a bit beyond my skills.

This is done upstream:

I assume it is in the 1.2.0 release.
Comment 2 ta2002 2013-05-03 15:33:36 UTC
From the sflphone mailing list (no, this was not me - I already knew that):

"> The Gentoo ebuild seems to require pulseaudio.  Is that a mistake?

You can disable pulseaudio and use only ALSA."
Comment 3 ta2002 2013-05-03 16:00:36 UTC
Just received confirmation that this feature was available as of 1.2.1.
Comment 4 Jean-Noël Rivasseau (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-05-04 22:57:45 UTC
Implemented in latest ebuild.
