Hi!, i had some troubles with pulseaudio, reading a post on a web it say's that it would help if i remove pulseaudio and then reinstall it.

then i execute "sudo yum remove pulseaudio" and fail, now i can't access my desktop, on start it goes directly to a terminal. (the loading logo of fedore still showing up)

I really don't know where could be the problem.

You shouldn't trust whatever you find in web! Also, you shouldn't use outdated information. Removing pulse audio is probably a suggestion for the early days of pulse audio, but certainly not now. What I'd suggest is to login in text mode, and try running yum history undo last as root (if you have not done any other activities with yum after running yum remove pulseaudio).

(If your last yum command is not pulseaudio removal command, you can check yum history (and probably yum history info) to find the command number and use yum history undo CMD_NUMBER to undo it.)

I don't think it is right. Some dnf upgrade disabled sound card, so I browsed for problem solution and found the same:

remove pulseaudio
install pulseaudio

problem is, that remove and install pulseaudio back will not restore everything touched. I think there is a problem with dependencies configuration. And it lasts for too long. I had the same problem with ubuntu 5years ago and it lasts...
