I used 33 (KDE) and upgraded to 34 using this command:
dnf install -y postgresql13-server.
Now my audio is much less stable than the previous version: specifically:
- My bluetooth headset does not output any audio (usually without any symptoms in the system)
- My external Shure Mv5 microphone (with monitor headphone, which I use in video conferencing randomly starts playing deafening white noise
- My “Builtin analog stereo output” does not switch to headphones automatically after plugging the headphone in, also changing manually usually has no effect
Many things are random. So doing the same thing again can lead to a different result.

From random google searches,
Server name: should be:
Pipewire but is:

My understanding is that pipewire is not the current audio service, and many of my problems would hopefully be solved by changing to that.
So the solution in here to run the next commands should have no additional effect?
cd /usr/lib64/ sudo ln -sf pipewire-0.3/pulse/libpulse-mainloop-glib.so.0 /usr/lib64/libpulse-mainloop-glib.so.0.999.0 sudo ln -sf pipewire-0.3/pulse/libpulse-simple.so.0 /usr/lib64/libpulse-simple.so.0.999.0 sudo ln -sf pipewire-0.3/pulse/libpulse.so.0 /usr/lib64/libpulse.so.0.999.0 sudo ln -sf pipewire-0.3/jack/libjack.so.0 /usr/lib64/libjack.so.0.999.0 sudo ln -sf pipewire-0.3/jack/libjacknet.so.0 /usr/lib64/libjacknet.so.0.999.0 sudo ln -sf pipewire-0.3/jack/libjackserver.so.0 /usr/lib64/libjackserver.so.0.999.0 sudo ldconfig
What can I do to make my system more similar to a freshly installed fedora 34?
Or alternatively, how can I fix my issues?
