THANK YOU. That is *ALL* I was asking for at the start of this thread.
This whole thread could have been accomplished with one polite useful
reply. But no, Bastien Nocera had to escalate it in to a dickfest.

$ pulseaudio 
E: module.c: Failed to load  module "module-alsa-sink" (argument:
"control=PCM"): initialization failed.
E: main.c: Module load failed.
E: main.c: Failed to initialize daemon.

So how the shit do I make it work?
