Thanks for that. I installed easily - it did not solve the problem with the soundcard.

The weird thing is that with Mephis and PCCentoOS (both KDE unlike Oracle enterprise Linux which is Gnome) the sound works fine.

How can I compare the setup?

Please post the output from the following.

Code:
$ cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec
$ cat /proc/asound/version
Good luck. ;-)

How about the output from the following:

Code:
$ cat /usr/src/linux/Documentation/sound/alsa/HD-Audio-Models.txt
Let's have a look for your codec in that file and see what quirks are available.

Good luck. ;-)

Thank you I fixed it.

I installed Alsa Mixer Gui and I clicked on various things and the sound came out.
