Ah, that's right, all of this started with an attempt to remove pulseaudio.
I don't know what the original problem with pulseaudio was (why remove
it and not use it or disable it?) but two things:
1. yum remove pulseaudio on my newly upgraded (F7-> F8) machine only
removes pulseaudio-esound-compat as a dependency, so no need to mess up
the whole system
2. there was a message today about an update for pulseaudio. It's now in
the updates-testing repository, so with a little patience, there is a
chance that whatever problem you had, will be solved soon.
If not, then I would recommend to file a bug report describing what is
broken in pulseaudio on your system, including important information
like the hardware and software being used, and what happens (error
message, no sound, weird sound, whatever). If errors are not reported to
the pulseaudio maintainers, they will not know that something needs o be
fixed.
