I reported a bug on the mailing list about 21 months ago and got
a response from Chuck Ebbert at redhat that removing pulseaudio
is  the solution to get sound working:

https://listman.redhat.com/archives/rhl-beta-list/2007-October/msg00924.html

I tried pulseaudio again each subsequent release and got the same results and
then finally filed this bug report:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=502380

So far no requests for more information or suggested changes.  :(

Removal of pulseaudio still works for me, and by the number of
complaints I see on mailing lists, I have concluded that pulseaudio
doesn't work for a lot of people despite having been included in
fedora for nearly 2 years.  The problem is that it's becoming
increasingly painful to remove pulseaudio because of dependencies.

Cheers,

                   David
