no sound on gateway laptop with Fedora 3
I am new to linux and would appreciate any insight into configuring sound on a gateway model 3018 laptop. I have done considerable reading on sound issues on many websites but I seem to have hit a wall. All the hardware is recognized, including the wireless card using Fedora 3.
kernel: uname -a
Linux linuxremote.newdatasys.com 2.6.11-1.35_FC3 #1 Mon Jun 13 00:52:08 EDT 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I checked to see if the sound server is enabled, as will as all volume controls on full.
The system recognizes the sound card, but I hear no test sound. The only sound emitted is the two beeps when the cisco wireless network card is recognized during the boot process.
Having spent most of my free time researching how to enable sound on a laptop, I seem to be getting nowhere. Being new to linux I am unsure whether to recompile the kernel with a new sound modules and new drivers, or try to make a new loadable module. Do I try to change the IRQ's also of the sound device?
I would appreciate any guidance on this matter as I don't have the time to keep researching this topic. Am I missing anything simple here?
You should check your configured mixer (alsamixer, ossmixer).there are a number of sound options that maybe muted. I unmuted ADC DAC lines and raised the levels to full to get my sound working on a IBM Thinkpad w/ Fedora 4. You may have to try different combinations but I would definitely begin there.
