I disabled it on F8, and F9, by a, yum remove alsa-plugins-pulseaudio . If you 
are using KDE, this will also remove the kde-settings-pulseaudio package. I f 
you play games that use SDL, add this line below to /home/user/.bashrc, which 
will remove the hack that SDL programs needed to use pulseaudio.

unset SDL_AUDIODRIVER

By doing the above, you should now be in the happy situation of now having 
your audio apps using alsa directly again.

Nigel.

btw. No disrespect to Lennart Poetering, author of Pulseaudio. Some folks love 
it, others just disable it, as they have problems with it. All about having 
the freedom to choose I suppose.
