ALSA in FC 2 Kernel 2.6.8-1.358 Problem


Dear All

I installed FC 2 with Kernel 2.6.8-1.358. First time getting experience with FC 2 was surprising me. It's very cool. But the problem began when I tried to play XMMS, RealPlayer, Noatun, there is no sound output. (no problem in Redhat 7.3)

This is the result of /sbin/lspci in my shell console:

[root@SATRIA root]# /sbin/lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 650/M650 Host (rev 80)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] Virtual PCI-to-PCI bridge (AGP)

[root@SATRIA root]# /sbin/modinfo soundcore
description: Core sound module
author: Alan Cox
license: GPL
alias: char-major-14-*
vermagic: 2.6.5-1.358 686 REGPARM 4KSTACKS gcc-3.3

Additional information, i got from Hardware Browser as follows:

Device Information:
Manufacturer:C-Media Electronics Inc
Driver : snd-cmipci




Any Suggestions?
Should I recompile my kernel?

Thanks

Hi satria, welcome to lq. Have you tried running a mixer and unmuting your sound? What steps have you taken to configure the card? May we see the output of lsmod as well please?
good luck.

In KDE, i can get sound from XMMS if output-plugin configuration is switched to arRts Output 0.6.0, but the sound quality is very bad. Other drivers (Alsa 1.2.10, eSound and OSS 1.2.10) have not worked.

Your welcome. Looks as if all the modules are loaded. If you are able to get sound from xmms, then this is most likely a mixer problem. I'd try some different mixer settings, and see what you come up with.
good luck.
