Unhappy Alsa detected my soundcard, but I can't find it in the sound setting.


My soundcard is M-Audio FastTrack C400

ALSAMIXER detected it really well

but i tried to type : lspci | grep -i audio
return:
00:14.2 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)
01:00.1 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Turks/Whistler HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 6000 Series]

I cant see my sound card..

what should i do for this situation.

Your post is confusing. lspci is displaying two sound devices just fine. If alsamixer detected the sound card, what is the problem?

Have you got sound modules loaded? 'lsmod | grep snd' ( without the quotes ) will show any alsa modules that are loaded.

Do you have any sound? Try in a console 'aplay any.wav' ( supply a valid path to the file and a correct name ). Make sure the speakers are attached, and the volume is turned up.

I don't have any sound from this sound card. I mean I can't find my sound card is in gnome-sound-control(maybe it relates to pulseaudio), but I can find that in the alsamixer. Thus, I can't make this sound card as default in the sound setting panel.

Please run this, and post the results.

If you can play .wav files, you probably are missing the codec to play files like .mp3 .

This is Fedora. Not sure where to tell you to look. I'll do some googling, and see what I can find.

O.K. a little googling turned this up...

Hope this helps.
