Just a point Karl, and as I've mentioned before. The only package that needs 
to be removed is alsa-plugins-pulseaudio. Doing this is sufficient to get 
your sound working again.

Neither pulseaudio, or any of the other pulseaudio packages need to be 
removed. F8 will still update pulseaudio packages, but will not, repeat, will 
not re-install alsa-plugins-pulseaudio, so your sound (hopefully) will 
continue to work.

Cordially.
