The Raspbian people have come to their senses and kicked out pulseaudio.
In Jessie, we used PulseAudio to provide support for audio over Bluetooth, but
integrating this with the ALSA architecture used for other audio sources was
clumsy. For Stretch, we are using the bluez-alsa package to make Bluetooth
audio work with ALSA itself. PulseAudio is therefore no longer installed by
default, and the volume plugin on the taskbar will no longer start and stop
PulseAudio. From a user point of view, everything should still work exactly as
before ? the only change is that if you still wish to use PulseAudio for some
other reason, you will need to install it yourself.
So I will get another SD card, and try this out.
I really need to look into bulk purchases of SD cards and stock in these
companies! :) ;) Since these things are needed liked water now days.
