Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Today I went to YouTube for the first time since I installed Fedora 19, and saw that I needed to install a missing Flash plugin in order to watch videos. I installed the plugin. Youtube videos then played fine, except no sound. I checked my sound settings and made sure everything was turned up/on, and tested both the left and right speakers using the troubleshooting tool. No sound from either. I've tried both the 'microphone' and 'internal microphone' options. Point me in the right direction?
If I understand you correctly the Youtube business is a red herring. Your problem has nothing to do with the flashplayer plugin. You don't have any sound at all, right? Have you tried running alsamixer from a terminal? You can make sure all the settings for your card are correct. What audio system are you using (alsa? pulse? other?)?
Looks like I'm stuck again. I've been using Google for a while, but I can't determine the source of the problem.
Here's the info for my sound card:
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation NM10/ICH7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 02)
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 1297
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 43
Memory at feb3c000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel
I have Alsamixer. When I go into Alsamixer and hit F6 for 'select sound card,' my choices are default, HDA Intel, and 'enter device name.' I've tested the speakers with both default and HDA Intel selected, but I still have no sound. Again, I've made sure all volume controls are turned up.
