A late reply on this part but while I can load up the EPEL repo and
install MOST of the pulseaudio rpm's cleanly, I can't get
pulseaudio-compat-esound to install as a dependency with esound is
detected.  It seems that all of gnome (and other packages) requires
esound. If I use "rpm -e --nodeps ..." to remove esound and then
install pulseaudio-esound-compat, it is then impossible to log onto
the system with a gnome session. The error message is that libesd.so
isn't found by gnome session and the session immediately exits.
Googling reveals that apparently this has been an issue for a bit.
Re-installing esound allows users to log back in again (which
automatically uninstalls pulseaudio-esound-compat)

So, how do I cleanly uninstall esound?  I could just let the system
uninstall every package with a dependency and then re-install all of
them but that is a daunting proposition.
