HI just finished installing fedora core 2 and everything seemed to go smoothly up untill fedora detects the sound card.Fedora is capable of finding the card but it wont play any sound.I've tried installing the latest alsa drivers to no avail.I also have alsa compiled as a module..I did a lsmod and it shows everything being loaded.
my system is the same as u(i think)
but i fixed the problem by compiling new version alsa driver.
these are some note u should check.
1: are u using the right method to compile. some time using ./configure --with-cards=emu10k1 --with-sequencer may help.
2: after installation, make sure the permission on /dev/dsp /dev/mixer /dev/midi have rw permission. change the perm with chmod a+rw /dev/dsp /dev/mixer /dev/midi
3: the default installation mute all sound, unmute all part and switch to max. and try to use only alsamixer, although there is some other gui configuration tool e.g kmix.
PS: switching all part to max is not a good idea. when the test is success try to adjust the volume part to suit your favour.
Well I downloaded the 2.6.6 kernel from kernel.org and installed it.I know have sound and can have multiple progs using the card.I cant get my mic to work at all.I know its not the card it self since it works in windows but I have tried the howto on linuxgamers.net for TS and I don't even hear anything if I unmute the mic and turn on mic boost.I'm going to get the latest alsa drivers and give them a try.
I just did a fresh install and I have no sound either. I've got a SB 128 PCI card and it sounds great in WinXP Pro. I get an error stating that my sound doesn't work and it will be sending sound to a null output device, whatever that means. I've got the 2.6.6 kernel and still nothing, just a lot of hissing from the speakers. I have no idea how to recompile the drivers or the kernel or anything. Can anyone suggest anything?
