Fedora 14x64 No soundcard detected


I installed F14x64 on an HP Pavillion pt6616f-b. Its supposed to have an ATI HDMI audio card, but when I right click on the sound icon on the top right corner and go to "configure sound" (or whatever the English alternative), and click the soundcard tab, there is nothing there.

Also:

~]$ aplay -l
aplay: device_list:235: no soundcards found...

~]$ aplay -L

Please post the output of:

dmesg | grep -i "snd\|sound"

and:

lsmod | grep -i snd

As you can see, nothing comes up. The only way I know there IS in fact a sound card there is through the output in the OP.

I had a similar problem with fc14. Have you considered upgrading to 15? After all, we are only a few weeks away from 16. I think I used
Code:
alsamixer
to select the sound card.

That means the sound card is completely unsupported in that release. Using a later release as thezerodragon suggested is probably a good idea, though I'd probably go with the Fedora 16 beta at this point, since that will have the latest drivers and F16 is only 3 weeks from release.

before you get to far
Fedora 14 is about to hit it's " End Of Life " in about 1 month ( 5 weeks)

at that time there will be NO support

i would install 15 NOW before you get to involved in getting sound working on 14
