That seems to have been excised earlier.  But there are still two pa related 
packages that if removed, will take most of kde with it.  Audio is for the 
most part working, with a very occasional stutter. FF crashed while watching 
several videos, and left something repeating a fraction of a word for about 5 
minutes, I searched for something to kill in htop and came up empty and it 
finally stopped.  NDI what was leftover.  And FF's crash reporter must have a 
timeout cuz it went away before I got back to it from looking for the noise 
maker.  So that crash report never got sent.

Thanks Rex.

Cheers, Gene
