Fedora 3 Sound Problems


Installed fedora Core 3 over Redhat 9. After installation was complete I can only hear sounds if my speakers are plugged into the headset socket on my sound card. Also I can barely hear the sounds.
Any suggestions on how I go about fixing this?
I've checked the sound mixer and nothing is muted. I have the same problem if i'm logged in as root or as a regular user.
Thanks
Gina

Open a console, and type the command alsamixer. FC3 uses alsa... I think this was after RH9. Anyway, most people end up with it on mute or something silly. Try adjusting the volume here.

How do you save the changes after you adjust the volume in the consule window? I saw a save option but how do i get it to really save? thanks sorry for the dumb question.

I think it just saves automagically. I make my adjustments, then hit escape and that's that.

Did it resolve your problem?
