The "file not found" means the package is not installed. To find which package, highlight/copy/paste "libasound.so.2" (the missing files) into this rpm search utility. At the top of the next page is a link to the FC6 specific package where you can download it/them from, pick the one that matches your architecture, you more than likely need both the i386 & x86_64 packages if you're running x86_64. Install them with command (replace "packagename" with actual package name):
Code:
rpm -ivh packagename.rpm
Or yum if you have a connection and you have atrpms as one of your repositories.

Wink Fixed with reinstall

Was a good reason to reinstall as I needed to modify partitions anyway. Sound now works with package driver. Thanks
