If you installed selinux I'm almost 100% certain that your SELinux policy is
denying sound to work. SELinux is a very wild cat that is hard to tame, it
was the only thing that made me sweat about the RHCE exam. The reason why it
takes so long to boot the machine after selinux is installed or enabled is
because the kernel needs to write the new selinux policy on all of the
inodes on disk.

I would either disable selinux or troubleshoot any AVG denials you're
getting, you may just need to change or reset SELinux conditions in order to
be functional again.

Good tools:

Selinux logs AVG denials to /var/log/messages

You may disable selinux in /etc/selinux/config
