FC 8 , Pulseaudio no worky

Fc 8 /KDE
Trying to start pulseaudio and get error message below.

I have no sound playing .wmv files , but I can play Flash videos

$ pulseaudio

** (process:11698): WARNING **: Error doing GetSessionForUnixProcess on ConsoleKit: org.freedesktop.DBus.GLib.UnmappedError.CkManagerError.Code0: Unable to lookup session information for process '11698'

** (process:11698): CRITICAL **: polkit_session_set_uid: assertion `session != NULL' failed
E: polkit.c: Cannot set UID on session object.

N: main.c: Called SUID root and real-time/high-priority scheduling was requested in the configuration. However, we lack the necessary priviliges:

N: main.c: We are not in group 'pulse-rt' and PolicyKit refuse to grant us priviliges. Dropping SUID again.

N: main.c: For enabling real-time scheduling please acquire the appropriate PolicyKit priviliges, or become a member of 'pulse-rt', or increase the RLIMIT_NICE/RLIMIT_RTPRIO resource limits for this user.

E: main.c: Failed to create '/tmp/pulse-tom': Operation not permitted
process 11698: dbus_shutdown() called but connections were still live. This probably means the application did not drop all its references to bus connections.
D-Bus not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace

the pulse audio was still EXPERIMENTAL and very new ( it was first used in fedora8) and was VERY VERY buggy on the now past End OF Life fedora 8
please install fedora 10

there were many how to for fedora 8 but do to fact it is unsupported those web pages have been taken down
the only one up is
but do not expect all of the links to work .

-- edit --
And as far as i know NEVER worked on KDE 3.5 on fedora 8
