If you installed FC2, then you might need to configure the ALSA drivers to work with kernel 2.6.x. Fedora FC1 didn't have this problem since it used kernel 2.4.x and used OSS sound drivers. Kernel 2.6 uses ALSA now instead of OSS. It can be a pain in the a$$ to get it to work.

Search the Fedora forum and you'll find plenty of posts regarding sound and kernel 2.6

Good Luck!

You should also check the volume levels.

I forgot to mention that. I think the volume is essentially muted. To unmute it, you have to get ALSA installed so you can run the alsamixer.

It's really a pain. I hope they fix it.
