There must be a better/more professional way of doing this - since

Your right, although I have not tried it.

That's an interesting idea, especially as my laptop is multi-user and I
need a solution where the default configuration can be used by everybody
but I can "switch" into a special audio configuration as and when required.
It would be nice if Fedora-music could pick this up a make a nice gui
which would allow a normal user to switch an installation into an
audio/video optimsed mode and back to an home-office mode.
I'm always thinking
of the better ways to tackle this. Perhaps we could
do something as you suggest... shouldn't be too hard.

The biggest contribution that the Fedora-music team can make is too
persuade the fedora-core team to introduce a rolling update release aka
openSUSE Tumbelweed and Linux Mint. The multimedia apps (on linux) are
bleeding edge whereby the developers of the most interesting apps are
willing to make bug fixes and introduce new features quickly.
Unfortunately, these improvements upstream never filter down to the
fedora repos mostly because there are too few fedora packagers. A single
rolling release with snapshot releases for marketing purposes would meet
fedora aims for an actual distribution and significantly reduce the work
Have you tried Rawhide? I maintain rawhide on at least two of my
systems, with only the very occasional breakages. Fedora as a
distribution tends to be the first to go with the big changes (I'm
thinking systemd / Gnome 3 etc) and I'm not sure that this kind of
effort could be coordinated into smaller rolling releases.
I find that most packages are relatively up to date in rawhide / rawhide
-1 . Raising bugs to alert packages to new upstream releases is always a
really good idea. Some packagers maintain so many it is hard to keep
