William, I've been across the other side of the country this past
week; it seems you have been persevering, good to see.

Without me actually reviewing the planet archives,
this might be
People interested in real-time, production quality audio recording,
manipulation and playback are probably better to use the
jack-audio-connection-kit toolkit based apps, and real-time patched
kernel from planet ccrma. Pulseaudio has other goals in mind, which in
some way conflict with the purist way.
Sounds good to me, I don't even know what PulseAudio does other
kept Rhythmbox from working when I first installed Fedora 10 on a
computer. But what dependencies will I be breaking?
If you decide to go down the
remove pulseaudio route, use yum to erase
the bits you are thinking of doing. Then if something unexpected occurs,
you can read the /var/log/yum*.log to remind you of the packages that
you removed. At least doing that should lead you to determine whether
pulseaudio is adding to your troubles. Without PA, all apps need to be
pointed at alsa (I think).
If you want to see what is going on at the pulseaudio level, it is
usually suggested to pulseaudio -k, then pulseaudio -vvv to start the
daemon in verbose mode.
I have just upgraded my F10 i386 machine to F11 preview, and haven't yet
done any audio testing on it.
ps. it's sort of poor list etiquete to set the reply to address of mail
to lists to yourself only. If you are willing to put your queries in
public, it makes sense that all readers of the list should get replies
to your thread. So I adjust the to back to f-m-l and cc yourself.
