I apologize. I thought it was a typo on my name. Sound works in f7 and
I have f7 on a laptop that I am using. I just was trying to move forward
and thought that someone might have an idea what permissions could be
involved. But what bothers me that I am apprehensive of continuing on
with Fedora. Is f9 going to be better? It is all so frustrating after 15
or 20 years of success.
