No Sound Fedora Core 3


Installed Fedora Core 3, and now I don't get sound.

The first thing that I would like to do is see if there is an IRQ conflict between the "onboard" sound card and the Sound Blaster card that I installed.

How would I check for an IRQ conflict? Would the /proc/interrupts file show that two devices share the same IRQ?

Thanks All

i think it would be one of 3 things...
- if you want to use your pci sound card, isnt there an option in your BIOS to disable onboard sound?
- you havent configured alsa yet
- the driver/module for your sound card isnt supported and youll need to download and install it

Thanks!

I looked for the bios setting to turn off the sound device -- no luck. Interestingly, after installing Fedora Core 3, I couldn't find any signs that the onboard sound device was noticed at all -- /proc surfing found nothing. I did find some codecs but not an actual device.

After installing the sound card, I the system saw the card, but it just didn't work. I probably need to find updated drivers.

No luck with alsa.

have u had problems with sound in past distros youv tried (if applicable)?
try open a mp3 with your media player from a command line to see if that gives any usefull output, ie:
Code:
xmms /mnt/mp3s/track_1.mp3
and the control centers for your distro dont help at all, under the devices/audio+video/media sections, or whichever it would be?
what card do you have?

nadroj,

I'm studying linux . So as an experiment -- rather than thinking it was the right thing to do, I put in an old sound card.

While I hoped this would give sound I also hoped I would learn a bit about IRQ s: sharing, discovering conflicts, resolving conflicts, etc.

You kindly and most understandably are trying to help me get the sound running, and while it would be good to have the sound work, that's not my true objective. So I'm afraid that I've mislead this thread.
