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.

I would probably start at:
http://pulseaudio.org/wiki/Documentation

There is a nice menu on the right side that serves as a table of
contents, as well as pointing to where to find information on things
like userland programs.

A list of tools is nice, much like giving someone a car which doesn't work and packing list for a big set of auto tools, complete with notes on what the individual tool does, and letting that someone fix the car. What is lacking is some procedure for finding the problems, diagnostics, not the tools to fix them.

All I find is lists of tools, and people who say it works for them so "it must be your hardware" even thought it works with FC6. And people who see no problem holding the conflicting concepts that it "works right off the bat" and "you have it set up wrong."
