Qt5: PulseAudio vs ALSA

  • Hi,

    Qt5 checks for the availability of pulseaudio development header files at compile-time. There actually appear to be two tests:

    • qtmultimedia/config.tests/pulseaudio
    • qtbase/config.tests/unix/pulseaudio

    If I understand correctly, ALSA sound support will not be compiled in the build if pulseaudio is found. Is that correct? If not, how do I select the ALSA backend at runtime?

    Is there a way to suppress pulseaudio detection at configure-time?
