The recent change to default pulseaudio for linux VM packages may not be a very good idea for the Raspbian Pi system. I know we've some ... issues... with ALSA that have made for very unhappy people at times but at least in the Pi world pusleaudio is not considered any improvement. So much so that it is not included in the distro.

See https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=256225#p1562939 for a more or less official comment.

Given that, I'd urge not setting that default for the linuxARM packages.
