I've long had these setup to skip pulseaudio, using alsasink with a
specific device (see
) :

          <entry name="chataudiosink" mtime="1265693808" type="string">
        <entry name="musicaudiosink" mtime="1265693856" type="string">
                <stringvalue>alsasink device=&quot;hw:SB,1&quot;</stringvalue>
        <entry name="audiosrc" mtime="1282881667" type="string">
        <entry name="audiosink" mtime="1282881208" type="string">
                <stringvalue>alsasink device=&quot;default&quot;</stringvalue>

Unfortunately, despite these and other measures in place, I still
continue seeing signs of attempting to contact pulseaudio first in
gnome/gstreamer apps: "socket(): Address family not supported by
protocol" ( e.g.
http://www.spinics.net/lists/fedora-music/msg00607.html )

The only way I've disabled this consistently is with apps that accept the gnome
"--disable-sound" flag. Unfortunately, some apps, libs, plugins, etc.
don't use standard gnome command line processing and do not set this
capability. Which is why I wonder if there's yet another way, such as
environment variable, or some special extra magic setting I can add to
/home/npm/.gconf/system/gstreamer/0.10/default/%gconf.xml ?
