If you have some javascript information that is germane to this, I'd
appreciate it. Anyway, gxine isn't in the stock Fedora repositories.

I found a really old article online "How to make PulseAudio run once
at boot for all your users," disregarding the bluetooth part, and got
the following...

	ALSA lib pulse.c:243:(pulse_connect) PulseAudio: Unable
	to connect: Connection refused

	Floating point exception (core dumped)

Sound works fine in the original configuration, but doing the
suggested changes breaks sound completely. I don't know if SELinux
being set to enforcing has anything to do with this, and I didn't test
it before going back to the stock setup. This isn't high priority for
me, but maybe I can revisit this at a later time.

I may just try Devuan Jessie 1.0 Beta.
