    Reinstalling Pulse or Alsa

    I don't what is the difference between both drivers. I think I mess here in my notebook trying to install both drivers at the same time and the icon of sound doesnt appear anymore.
    Now, I don't know which of them I have. I'm trying to uninstall all the sound drivers to install since the beginning a new all the time that I try to uninstall running this command: sudo apt-get remove --purge alsa-base pulseaudio . I get this error:
    Building initial module for 3.8.0-35-generic
    Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.8.0-35-generic (x86_64)
    Consult /var/lib/dkms/alsa-hda/0.201210261053~natty1/build/make.log for more information.
    dpkg: error processing alsa-hda-dkms (--configure):
    subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 10
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

    Any help for a noob? Thanks

    Um, you do realize that purging pulseaudio will remove huge chunks of your system, right?
    A successful remove of pulseaudio should also remove most of your desktop environments (they depend upon PA), leaving you with a command-line only system.
