Thanks, I should have thought of that.
I already had a 'rpm -qa | sort > rpms.list.f9' that I could have
looked at...

In any case, I removed all the modules I found in the above list, 
rebooted, and as ME, I have no audio in either aplay nor firefox.
Doing a su and trying again, I have audio both places, so it seems
that there is still a permission problem somewhere.

Here is the output from aplay

[reg deneb AU]$ aplay wheee.au

Any further thoughts???
If I could get some sound working, I could move to f9.
