I have had lots of input on this problem, however, none have fixed the
At this point, it is time to submit a bug report.
Do I need to file the report with Fedora or with kernel.org?
Thanks to all for your help,

I have tried all the recommendations I have received but none fixed
the sound problem.
I normally install a list of programs using ks.cfg. To eliminate the
possibility of not including one or more programs that need to be
installed I re-installed F20 using the dvd and changing the desktop to
xfce with xfce plugins and libreoffice.
The install program made all other selections.
After install I did a sound test using aplay on the original F20
kernel (3.11) and sound worked.
I then did a full upgrade, reboot and retested using the same program
(aplay) and the same sound file.
It would seem to me that one of the sound modules is the cause of the
problem. The sound modules that are install are:
snd_hda_codec_realtek 45592 1
snd_hda_intel 42658 6
snd_hda_codec 155748 2 snd_hda_codec_realtek,snd_hda_intel
snd_hwdep 13232 1 snd_hda_codec
snd_seq 54679 0
snd_seq_device 13824 1 snd_seq
snd_pcm 81999 4 cx88_alsa,snd_hda_codec,snd_hda_intel
snd_page_alloc 13852 2 snd_pcm,snd_hda_intel
snd_timer 23750 2 snd_pcm,snd_seq
snd 59132 24
soundcore 14123 1 snd
Since I am not very knowledgeable about sound, is it reasonable to
unload all sound modules and reload the sound modules from the 3.11
kernel and re-test?
If so, do I use insmod 'full/path/to/module' that i want to load?
Do I load them in the order that they are listed above? If not what
order do I need to use?
Thanks for everyone's input,
