pulse audio problems

Ok so I have been googling for a few hours and nothing really seems to work to fix this, am I the only one having this problem?

Fresh fedora 9 preview install, with all of the current updates. I have a brand new Dell Inspiron 1525n (the n stands for linux, pre-installed) yea Linux! Ubuntu works great, which sucks because I love fedora. At least I have the dual boot, my problem, no sound at all. I couldn't get paman to connect to my sound server until I added my user to pulse-rt in /etc/group, now that at least works, but still no sound.

The only other thing I have is the error output from /var/log/messages

Code:
pulseaudio[2409]: polkit.c: Cannot set UID on session object.
pulseaudio[2409]: main.c: Called SUID root and real-time/high-priority scheduling was requested in the configuration. However, we lack the necessary priviliges:
pulseaudio[2409]: main.c: We are not in group 'pulse-rt' and PolicyKit refuse to grant us priviliges. Dropping SUID again.
pulseaudio[2409]: main.c: For enabling real-time scheduling please acquire the appropriate PolicyKit priviliges, or become a member of 'pulse-rt', or increase the RLIMIT_NICE/RLIMIT_RTPRIO resource limits for this user.
pulseaudio[2409]: main.c: setrlimit(RLIMIT_NICE, (31, 31)) failed: Operation not permitted
pulseaudio[2409]: main.c: setrlimit(RLIMIT_RTPRIO, (9, 9)) failed: Operation not permitted
oh and
Code:
pulseaudio[2723]: module-x11-xsmp.c: X11 session manager not running.
pulseaudio[2723]: module.c: Failed to load  module "module-x11-xsmp" (argument: ""): initialization failed.
So gods of the Fedora Forum, help...

I too have no sound on an older Inspiron 1100. There are "pops" coming out of the speakers (even when speakers are muted) when there should be a sound.

I have no sound too. Hardware - Gigabyte P965 DS3 rev 1.0 (ICH8+ALC883).
The soundcard is detected as Intel HDA. I am check all sound-outputs (front, side e.t.c.) without success (no sound in any output).
I have no such problem in Fedora 6-8.

We seem to have the same problem.

Problem: Our sound output is muted after every boot.

Solution: Turn the sound on via kmixer or something like that.

I found no permanent solution yet, because of lack of time. Maybe anyone else know something better.

I think that it is no mute in my case... Well, there are no active mute icons in sound-mixer.

I tried to change signal levels on all regulators, switched from 6ch to 8ch mode (really I have stereo speakers). I got silence only from any output.

I also experience this too. I found it too annoying to listen to music with. Solution: I removed pulseaudio and everything improved. No more lag on videos, etc. I will try PA again in Fedora 10. It is curious though that Ubuntu users are reporting a smoother experience with PA. Makes me interested to know how they configured it versus the way Fedora is doing it.

I shall try and remove pulse audio with yum or yumex when I get back to my machine. I too have not had any sound issues from f6-8. Shall have to see what else is available.

ok so on my dell inspiron 1525n it turns out its a bug in the kernel and alsa is not configuring my sound card or something, it sucks that it is marked as a low priority bug, but heck I don't even know what that means so no sound for me and I just have to wait, unless someone knows of a work around

A warning, perhaps. I tried removing the pulse audio with yumex. I have semi trashed my installation. Boots to a non graphical login and seems to be wacked pretty bad. I have tried re-installing pulse to no avail,,,,,,perhaps I installed/removed something else.
Looks like a re-install from the live CD.
