How to set kernel module options in Fedora 12


Hi there! This is actually a follow-up from an earlier thread I posted as a newbie.
The problem I'm facing is that I can't use my headphone. Sound works, but not the headphone. See my ealier thread. It was suggested to edit the module options, but I don't quite know which buttons to push. And I'm not even sure that these options will solve my problem. Help is much appreciated.

Regards,
Anton

Have you tried this :
http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=225660

I had no device for my headphones but after following this thread, a device appeared and when I selected it it worked. I know it's for Fedora 11 but I ran it on Fedora 12 x86_64 and it worked. I skipped the audio scheduling part of the how to.

Tried it, but didn't work for me. There is still no listing for the headphone.

Can you copy the contents of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf here ?

Oops, no such file. The contents of my /etc/modprobe.d/ directory are:
anaconda.conf
blacklist.conf
blacklist-visor.conf
dist-alsa.conf
dist.conf
dist-oss.conf
options

Ok, how about dist-alsa.conf then ?

To let you know what I'm thinking - I think you are outputing digital sound when analogue is the only way it will work.

But...
You don't have headphones showing up in alsamixer. Have you tried using the pulseaudiochooser applet and seeing what that shows as available ?

install snd-pcm /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-pcm && /sbin/modprobe snd-seq

Yes I did. See attached file of devices I can choose from. Of course I've tried every option.
I just realized that the picture is in Dutch, but I think you can understand.
