Thanks for the help. It didn't work, but was worth the try.
UPDATE: On the volume control applet on the tool bar there is a red x on the speaker. When I double click on it I get: No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or devices found. I have gstreamer plugins loaded.
rpm -qa | grep gstream
I believe I screwed up my initial install of the sound driver (when I originally installed Fedora 6.)
When I run system-config-soundcard and test for the card I get:
"Automatic detection of the sound card did not work. This audio device will not be available on the system.
You can create /root/scsconfig.log, /root/scsrun.log on the System tab and file a new bug
Please click OK to continue."
Is there a way detect the soundcard like the initial install did. I believe I was closer to getting sounds working then because all the software tools acknowledged the presence of a soundcard just no sound. Now the software tools don't know about the soundcard.
I ran the soundcard logging tool and here is a small clip that shows there might be a problem.
------- /etc/asound.conf --------
#Generated by system-config-soundcard, do not edit by hand
------- aplay -l --------
aplay: device_list:218: no soundcards found...
------- amixer --------
------- /proc/asound/version --------
------- rpm -q alsa-lib --------
------- rpm -q alsa-utils --------
------- /proc/asound/modules --------
------- /proc/asound/pcm --------
The card listed in the soundcard detection utility is:
Intel 82801G ICH7 Family High Definition Audio Controller
Hopefully someone can piece this togather for me. I might be alright if I can get the latest alsa stuff to compile, but I don't know C well enough to know what's going on. See above.
