Hey, I strongly suspect that it already /does/ belong to "There, I fixed it",
since an out-of-the-box Fedora 13 install should be getting this right...

That said, I am not sure I see the problem giving the extra options to the OP
in this case, since it might be the case that they are trying to do something
that isn't covered by the ConsoleKit / udev ACL managed option like run MPD or
something like that.


Actually, it also occurs to me that the answer might be "use PulseAudio",
since I have no idea how Fedora approached integration with that, but IIRC
they did use it as the core sound system and all.
