Someone please help me so i wont change my mind to end up in windows.
My Soundcard: Creative Soundblast Live!
I installed FC3 and everything went good, it even showed that it detected my sound card and everything. But somehow there is no sound. because there is no mixer installed. I tryed using yum install aumix and after it finished and whatever still the mixer isnt installed...Can someone please please help...Thanks
Not sure what "the mixer" is, but check to see if you are using ALSA, and more so, to see if the modules for your sound card are being loaded:
From the command line, as root, will show what modules are loaded, then post em up. Also, post up your /etc/modules.conf so we can see what's going on in there.
Where to get alsamixer, well I suppose there is a Fedora way to do it, I've seem posts on using yum to install packages on Fedora, but not sure if that's universal. The universal way is of course using the source, but that's not always easy. I believe alsamixer is in the alsa-utils package, and you can get that from: http://alsa-project.org
Just curious which kernel you are running?
will tell you
Open up a terminal and type:
And hit enter. If it returns 'command not found' then try:
again, if you get 'command not found' then:
if nothing, then:
And still if nothing, then you'll need to get the package alsa-utils installed, this would be something to ask your fellow Fedora folks about
I happened to have the same kind of problem.
Try to run alsaconf as root means :
You have to open a Konsole, the "black" window in which you can type commands
Type "su" after the prompt
type your password
than type "alsaconf"
click on yes if it asks you to check your soundcard
then, as it says : Enjoy !
Did it 3 or 4 times in Mandrake 10.0. Worked perfectly well
Hope that can help you
