When the installer was testing the sound it worked fine, i was so excited. But then when i log into fedora, the sound is gone!

hey i have the same problem.

well i went to the cmedia wesite and used their linux driver (do a ggogle/linux search for c-media, i fogot their website but i know it is based in taiwan!), but there is a catch. although it worked fine in redhat 9, fedora will not allow you to use it as a oss (that is what the card is, that's what the driver is suppose to enable). instead you must use it as a threaded oss and then expect to have abput a 1-3 second delay.
Has ne one else come across this or fixed this? if so it would be nice if you post your findings/methods

I have tried to use the drivers on the C-Media site. I've even tried to use the drivers on the MSI site which is more updated than the one on the C-media site. But it wouldn't lemme compile...it keeps saying that it can't cound sound.o...any idea?

I have tried installling the newest OSS...'cuz on the Alsa site, it doesn't list CMI 9739a as one of the supported sound chip.

BTW...how do i select which system i use, like between OSS and Alsa...

I just don't get why it plays sounds when it tries to detect the sound card, system-config-soundcard, and not when I want to play a CD

I have also used OSS' sound test as well, and it plays sounds...any idea?

what gui do you use.

Well if you use kde, then the problem lies with arts. Arts supports oss, but not exactly alsa (ya have to trick it into accepting/talking to/with alsa). The reason why the configurator worked is because it bypassed or never initiated arts. So i am not a linux guru yet but i have learned a few things about sound card and video card in linux. I think it has to do with fedora core 1's interpretation od kde and the arts system, because in red hat 9, and 7.3 even, i go my sound to work full duplex and it was running as an open sound system in real time with my buffer at default (in the middle). In fedora core, my buffer is all the way to the left (smallestr buffer possible) and it is set in real time. I say it is fedora, sorry!
