I've been using F11 since it came out and it works great. But I haven't

What is Fedora expecting us to use and what do we need to do to get it
working ?

Fedora was expecting to use PulseAudio but you removed that as your predicate. That puts you with a vocal minority who would rather gripe about pulse audio than make it work so it will be up to them to tell you how to solve the sound issues that you 'fixed' by removing pulseaudio package.

Good, then point us to the documentation which describes how to make the alsamixer, advanced mixer, PA volume and tabs, and anything else which might clarify how to use the four or five sound apps which all interact with each other in such a way that sound works without days of fiddling which stop working at the next upgrade. PA is too damn fragile to use unless you are one of the few who has it work out of the box.

PA should have been an option for whoever has the bizarre obscure problem PA solves. And I have not been able to get any reasonable input from mic or line with PA on any of five systems, three of which work with SuSE, or Ubuntu, or Slackware (that's what the users changed to).

If it doesn't work out of the box there are no tools to ever make it work, which is why PA should be in the toybox, not the default.
