    I am on F7 now so yum repolist will not be accurate. For sure that 
is not the problem. The problem has to be something left on F8 after yum 
remove pulseaudio* was finished. I do not know what yum does but expect 
it is like rpm -qiv and it finds something left over from files that 
have been removed and thinks the whole is on the computer. Then it 
discovers the incomplete files do not do the job and errors out looking.
