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
