Ever since upgrading my Dell Intel box from RedHat 9 to Fedora Core 2,
sound has quit working.
When I use system-config-soundcard, I am told that the sound card is an
Intel 82801BA/BAM AC97 Audio, and that the appropriate module is
snd-intel8x0. However, I don't hear the sound that it is playing. Hence,
when I click "no", I am told that sound will not be installed on this
system (at least, by system-config-soundcard).
When logged in as root, the "lspci" command gives me the following:
This probably seems dumb but...
Check alsamixer and see if it isnīt muted,(you can also use kmix or aumix)
also play a little with those settings,
Make sure PCM is up, and if you see any VIA DXS turn those all up too.
Also it can be arts or esd related, if you are using Kde or Gnome respectively, try disabling them.
Try that and see if it works
HI, i donīt know about modules and stuff like that, you will need the help from a more power user,
In the mean while, print the out put of this commands:
cat /etc/modules.conf #for 2.6.* kernels: /etc/modprobe.conf
ls -L -l /dev/dsp*
# cat /proc/pci

# cat /etc/modprobe.conf

A brief note: I tried other versions of modprobe.conf, which had lines such as
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
It didn't make any difference.

I don't recall the post I saw it in, and have been searching the forum to find it, but someone found that, if you run kmix, there is a sound setting that you can mute, it's on the right hand side of the gui interface, deals with capture. I muted that and got sound. Still having a problem, though. Seems like Gnome is queueing sounds. If I'm watching a dvd, or playing music, and I get im's, the im sounds don't play unless I pause or stop the dvd, and then they all play one after the other. Anyone have a fix for that one?
Do all of you who are having problems with sound in FC2 have Dell computers with SoundBlaster cards that came installed by Dell?
If any of you do, I can tell you that they have a custom "widget" on the sound card to connect it and that they are not directly connected to the CD-rom. I connected my CD-rom with a cable to the sound card and now I have sound...but I also had to load an upgrade to ALSA (version 1.0.6 or higher) and use the EMU10K1X (not EMU10K1) driver...
