Huh? What was it trying to remove and why (i.e. what PA stuff did it
depend on)? Normally the only KDE package you have to remove when
removing PA is kde-settings-pulseaudio (duh...).

Hello, Everyone
When I tried this:
[root afolkey2 steve]# yum list | grep -i pulse

I got this:

So, I did this:
yum remove pulseaudio*
When I clicked "y", this was the result:

Is this ok [y/N]:

I, for one, have not removed pulseaudio as of yet :)

Steven P. Ulrick
I have been having audio problems that have got worse with time. When I loaded F8 I did the rpm -e pulse-audio but the updates have really turned it back on. So I did what you did and it cleared up the audio again.

Alas I use VLC and it removed that as well, but I just got it all back and it is working fine. It was vlc movies that had the worst audio problems. But that is fixed.

Thanks!
