No sound in FC3 on Intel D915GAVL
I am unable to get any sound in my Linux installation, which is Fedora Core 3 on a Intel D915GAVL mobo. I tried to look for similar threads but most have their solutions in modifying modprobe.conf--which is not very helpful until u know what driver u are looking for.
I have tried the following things already:
(1) Checked System Settings-->Detecting Sound card. Here it says it couldnt find one.
(2)Read through /etc/sysconfig/hwconf. Couldnt find a separate class called "AUDIO". Although, I did find a desc with the words "INTEL" and "audio" in it and a lot of numbers between them. But since the class isnt AUDIO THINK its not detected as a sound device.
(3)The modprobe.conf doesnt have a soundcard alias defined, which I guess is only natural because of points (1) and (2). This, also, I assume, means that just editing the conf file wont do any good (unless I have the proper driver name).
(4)Browsed through "alsa-projects.org/alsa-doc/index.php?vendor=All" to look for appropriate sound drivers. But it seems that this page has information about external sound cards and not mobo ones (at least not my mobo)
With this, I am at my wits end now and a bit tired :-) Plz help!
