Did you upgrade this system, or install it fresh?
You may need to install kde-settings-pulseaudio to get audio working with
pulseaudio in KDE if this was an upgraded system.
Moving to the 'arts' component for now.
I installed F8 from scratch since upgrades usually give problems.
I do daily "yum update"
I presume you are saying I need to do "yum install kde-settings-pulseaudio"
I have no idea what pulseaudio is!
the problem seems to be with "yum update"
maybe "yum groupupdate kdegroup"
I have to reboot daily and I get this same error roughly 25% of the time when
logging in to KDE. I have kde-settings-pulseaudio installed and all packages
are up to date. Seems like there is some kind of race condition happening.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
