no sound on Fedora 14


Hi,

I recently installed Fodora 14 on a PC with Asus mainboard.
CPU is AMD LE-1100.
The sound card is Realtek ALC662-GR Azalia High Definition Audio

Unfortunately after installation, there is no sound.
In fedora, System->Preferences->Sound window, Hardware tab is empty.

I tried to install two versions of sound card driver.
One came from the CD of the mainboard called realtek-linux-audiopack-4.06x
First I tried to run the "install", it went through to the final GUI stage searching for the sound card
but failed to find.
Then I tried to do a manual install following the readme file.
Basically, unpack->configure->make
but make failed with the following error message

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/user/00Sound/realtek-linux-audiopack-4.06x/alsa-driver-1.0.14rc3-4.06x/acore'

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Later I tried to download another version of the driver from Realtek web site
realtek-linux-audiopack-5.15

make also failed but with a different error

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.35.6-45.fc14.i686/source SUBDIRS=/home/user/00Sound/realtek-linux-audiopack-5.15/alsa-driver-1.0.23 CPP="gcc -E" CC="gcc" modules

make[1]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.35.6-45.fc14.i686/arch//Makefile'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.35.6-45.fc14.i686'
make: *** [compile] Error 2
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Could you please give me some advice on how to fix the problems?

Thanks in advance!

Have you got the snd-hda-intel kernel module loaded? Try
modprobe snd-hda-intel
tail -n 20 /var/log/messages

If you are on your own kernel, revisit the compile menu as you can (de)select support for various manufacturers' hardware.
