[SOLVED]Error removing pulseaudio

Wish to run only Alsa.

Want to remove both pulseaudio & pavucontrol

On running  sudo pacman -Rs pulseaudio
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: removing pulseaudio breaks dependency 'pulseaudio' required by paprefs

Thanks

OK, for the future, pacman told you what the problem is in the error message:
:: removing pulseaudio breaks dependency 'pulseaudio' required by paprefs

This mean that package "pulseaudio" can't be removed because package "paprefs" needs it.

Note:
When using command "pacman -Rsc <package>" read carefully what is going to be removed.
Man is as good as his tools.
