Crossover apps prevent sound in other applications

Users of 64-bit Fedora may notice that if a Windows app installed by Crossover is playing sound, other Linux apps cannot play their sounds until the app in Crossover is shut down. Likewise, if another Linux app is already using sound, an app in Crossover won't be able to use sound until that Linux app is shut down.

This is caused by a lack of the 32-bit alsa-plugin for pulseaudio. To fix, run the following command:

$ sudo yum install alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686
