Re: Safe removal of pulseaudio

   My F8 had a lot of rpm's with libs and binary files that make up a

a method I thought was going to be automatic using "yum". I used "yum
remove pulseaudio*" and I got a long list of things being deleted. I
didn't pay much attention but discovered my entire system was killed!

   When I installed F8 and after getting it set up I put the F8 DVD
back into the computer and looked at all the rpm's loaded and went to
those with pulseaudio in the name. There were about 5 and it was simple
to erase them if you picked the right ones first. I used no "rpm -e
--nodep" and they all are gone. I then had a total "update" and I looked
at /var/log/yum.log and see no more pulseaudio updates. This may have
been because I erased the original ones.

Karl - is there a reason to persist on this failing OS install?
Why not just do a fresh install?
But more importantly, why start a whole new thread? The same people
who read the  previous threads will be reading this one as well.

But how knows - you have a different way of doing things and one day
you may come across some Linux breakthrough.
