Pulse audio doesn't always start on startup (7.2.1+)
When starting on a fresh install on my rpi2 AND rpi4, I've had issues with pulse audio that did not start.
That makes EmulationStation hang on startup (no image on screen as graphics are not started)
Logs of a failed start:
ps fax | grep emulationstation shows a running ES
pacmd returns "Pulse audio not started"
Restarting pulse and ES makes it works.
It seems that it happens more often when i plug the Edimax Wifi Dongle on the rpi2 before starting.
