I found mention of esd compat support, but it was from earlier in the 
year late last year, so I didn't pay too much attention to it. Some one 
on a local users group mentioned esd so I looked for it and Fedora does 
have an Esound compat script. After installing it everything worked as 
before. Of course I do have that mentioned bug where it unexpectedly 
exits while in use. Thanks for the help
