Just installed F13 X86-64 from the KDE live CD, had a few problems.

[1] No sound - Pulse mixer shows no sound hardware. Fixed by changing 
permissions on /dev/snd/*. I thought console-kit was supposed to handle 

[2] No cdrom - Same problem, permissions on /dev/sr0.

[3] K3B doesn't see the CD-DVD drive, wants to use HAL to detect the 
CD-DVD drive. I thought HAL was gone.

Any clues would be appreciated.
