Hi Aaron. I got rid of pulseaudio on F8, as soon as I found sound was not working. The first thing I normally try is an audio cd. A complaint about some pulseaudio problem got me to ask a quick question to the list, and got me an answer to remove "alsa-plugins-pulseaudio". Sound now worked ok, as per the pre pulseaudio era. I must say that I didn't try alsamixer, so don't know if it was available or not. Marc has still not verified that the "alsa-plugins-pulseaudio" package is not installed, and that is the package that disables pulseaudio, and which is responsible for creating many problems when enabled. btw Aaron. I had a reply from the alsa-devel list regarding your snd-cs4236 problems. I don't think it's much help, but will post the reply to the thread that was running. Nigel.
