Fedora 10 Pulse Audio High CPU Usage

Guys using Fedora 10, must’ve seen this problem of Pulseaudio taking high CPU usage. After a lot of tweaking, I came to this. From System -> Preferences -> Hardware -> Sound

Change all the drop downs to ALSA. Just make sure u “Test” and hear the tone before applying the changes.

I’ve done this yum remove pulseaudio. This removes the root cause 🙂
