sound card not working


Hi all - can't get my sound card to work. I have two soundcards in my machine - one is a built-in one on the motherboard (Compaq Evo) think it uses an intel chipset - and the other is a new Soundblaster Live I have just bought. But neither will work.

When I run System Settings > Soundcard Detection, I am asked for my root password (which I enter) but nothing else happens. If I go into System Tools > Hardware Browser, the intel soundcard is displayed in there ?

I am running FC3 (Gnome desktop) any ideas please?

Try to run it from console as root with system-config-soundcard command

Do you get any errors?

This error message:

/usr/share/system-config-soundcard/soundcard.py:151: DeprecationWarning: use gtk.ComboBox
self.primaryDeviceOptionMenu = gtk.OptionMenu()
Traceback (most recent call last):

self.primaryDeviceMenu.set_active(self.cardList.index(self.soundcardBackend.getDefaultCard()))
ValueError: list.index(x): x not in list


Does this help?

I'll have to admit that i have no idea what's going on. I would try to re-install the applet, but that's my solution to everything (are there any updates?).

It seems like there's some bug or something in the applet's code. Maybe you should file a bug report or hope that someone wiser than me check's out this thread.
