ok its a dell so I should not call it an asus.conf either
ok looks like there is more than issue here so lets try to eliminate some of them?
1) I don't use Fedora. Any chance you can change?
if you did a got to the console login prompt, if you had the script smxi and/or sgfxi you can select and build your xorg and grab the graphics closed src drivers for nvidia
What distros are supported by sgfxi?
Amazingly, sgfxi now supports apt based Debian Stable, Testing, and Sid, as well as current Ubuntu/Debian derived distros, rpm based Fedora, and finally, pacman based Arch Linux
Unfortunately this means doing a clean install. But as you seem to be doing a number of these you probably getting sick and tired of that eh?
2) I am not trying to force you.....but if you ever choose to do a clean install again.....no matter what distro you choose
grab yourself a live cd that has fsarchiver on it
----its an image program which acts a little like Norton's ghost or Acronis true image....but only takes or restores PARTITION images and not individual files that ghost could do....or entire drives
I use it all the time.....trust me....its great
Being lazy I have a one fits all partition for my system files and any special junk gets saved separately to usb or cloud
my entire system file is 3G of data on a 20G partition
my music stuff is a separate backup etc etc
3) so can I suggest you download the sys rescue cd http://www.sysresccd.org/SystemRescueCd_Homepage
take an image of your existing system partitions....give them names like
sda1a (lateron) sda1b etc etc
sda5a (later on) sda5b etc etc.....depending on your structure
4) you may as well .....if you prefer to keep Fedora.....start a new thread in the fedora subforum and provide a link to it
in that new thread....copy and paste your exact error messages
also mention what you are doing and why you are trying to do it as people in the fed forum may not be mind readers
5) its always good to get more info and you said you would post more info so its OK
6) simple solution to try
create a /etc/modprobe.d/alien.conf contents using root powers of
options snd_hda_intel model=dell-headset-multi
full reboot and retest sound for speakers
and have you lost headphone and hdmi sound
---remember you need to choose each sound device in pavucontrol before testing
PS if you like nvidia closed source drivers for 3d.....I think you are better off in the long run being seduced into a debian system or arch
