To be honest, F12 was the first time I stopped removing pulse as the
first post-install step.
I've got 3 sound cards, and amazing as it sounds, pulse simply works -
and across the board! (virtualbox, KDE, skype, flash, games.)
Back to the subject, is pulseaudio alive?
$ ps -AH | grep pulse

snd-ctxfi is already a part of the built in alsa package (1.0.21)
shipped with Fedora 12.
I assume that you also did a "make install" when compiling the
alsa-driver tarball, right?
(Giving you a hybrid fedora + source installing)
