Help with Sound on FC3!!!!


Okay I have a
Vendor: VIA
Model:Technologies VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller
Module: is snd-via82xx

I play the test sound and it works perfectly but I can't hear any of my Cds play. I ust the generic cd player, whatever came preinstalled with FC3. I donwloaded xmms but i can't figure out how to find the cd to make it play. Anyway what should I do?

I tried Alsamixer in the terminal and turned the volume up on everything and then unmuted everything. Nothing. I don't know if that was good or bad but either way it still doesn't work.

If you do send some help be specfic b/c I am pretty new to this.,
Thank you so much to whoever responds!!

Down with Windows!!

when you say the 'generic' cd player, which one exactly ( are you using gnome or kde)?

what type of cd drives do you have (ide or scsi) (or more specifically what devices are they using (like /dev/hdc /dev/sr0))?

open up a console and:

Code:
ls -l /dev/cdrom
and see what other device its pointing to ( if this is IDE, probably /dev/hdc or /dev/hdd).

if that looks ok, then in a console do:

Code:
su -c gnome-cd
and give your root password to run it as root and see if it works. If it works as root, you have a permissions problem that we'll have to fix. If it still will not work then we'll have to look into your /dev folder and dmesg and such but for now try the above method.

this is what i got

ls -l /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 Jan 23 14:32 /dev/cdrom -> hdc

seems normal to me

su -c gnome-cd
GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session manager:
Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed.

The cd-rom player popped up and it played but with no sound, still.

hmm, the only thing i can think of is the either the cd audio cable is not connected or the cd channel is muted. Other than that, I think you pretty much have covered everything else ( since it is indeed playing the cd).

One more thing

Thank you for your help but tell me how to mute, or really unmute it. Maybe I thought I did but I really didn't
