You are right. I didn't give anyone what I did. The first thing I
did was rpm -e all the pulseaudio rpm's in the F8 DVD. Easy to replace.
Then I deleted all the pulseaudio rpm's from the updates. Easy to
replace. Last I removed the file Nigel said is key to turning off
I can replace all of that and the system should be where it was when
I first turned it on. Might do that tomorrow.
