I am trying to switch to Pipewire with PA(pipewire-pulse).

pulseaudio-equalizer is tied to a specific PA version however, which I believe is what breaks trying to install these two together ('pulseaudio=14.2-2')

:: pipewire-pulse and pulseaudio are in conflict. Remove pulseaudio? [y/N] y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: removing pulseaudio breaks dependency 'pulseaudio=14.2-2' required by pulseaudio-equalizer

I removed pulseaudio-equalizer and installed pipewire-pulse, but trying to install the equalizer back obviously fails on the same issue.

This task depends upon

These are incompatible. PipeWire cannot load PulseAudio modules. This is not a bug.
