Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've been working on getting Fedora 5 loaded onto my laptop for a few days now and have finally gotten the wireless working. Now the next part - during the install it detected a sound card, but was unable to get it play anything. I'm looking for advice of what to check.
The device that shows in the "Audio Devices" is "Intel ICH [SiS SI7012]
I know this sounds stupid, but I assume you've checked the volume?
Not stupid. Stupid is ALSA muting all channels by default.
schu777: you can easily tell if this is a simple channel muted issue by trying to play a file. It should look like it is playing a file but no sound. If this is the case then run 'alsamixer' or 'kmix' or whatever and unmute the channels.
Else, if you are getting some error we will need to see it.
Well - figured I'd grab a CD this morning and tried it out. No sound out of the main speakers...while charging my RioPlayer, figured I'd grab the headphones and plug those in...well, barely heard something, but turned up the volume and there it was...worked for the headphones from the headphone jack. Tried the external speakers, nothing. Opened up the volume controls and went through each tab to see what could be the cause...on the Switches tab, I unchecked the "External Amplifier" and then it worked.
So - for those that are having problems of sound card detected, on a laptop - check this out and see if this resolves the problem.
