Then PulseAudio is not working. (pavucontrol at least used to just segfault
if PA was not running or not accepting connections because it didn't find a
working hardware device.)

The pavucontrol name doesn't show up because the .desktop file doesn't
contain it. (It only has a Name field containing a generic name and no
GenericName field.) Complain to the pavucontrol maintainer(s) about that.
Where the names are contained in the .desktop file (i.e. for most KDE
apps), Kickoff will show them if you mouse over that item. Alternatively,
you can use the classic menu, which can be configured to show any
combination of Name and GenericName.

yum install kde-settings-pulseaudio
should drag in all you need. (You need at least pulseaudio and
alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.)
