Ok, I rooted around on this forum for help with my sound card. I have a Sound Blaster Audigy Gamer soundcard that is not working in FC2. It is being detected but no sound. I checked the volume and all was good there. so I went to the alsa-project website and downloaded the latest alsa-driver, alsa-lib, and alsa-utils files and followed the directions on the site..... I entered the following commands according to the directions on alsa-project website:
cp /downloads/alsa-* .
tar -xf alsa-driver-xxx
./configure --with-cards=emu10k1 --with-sequencer=yes;make;make install
chmod a+rw /dev/dsp /dev/mixer /dev/sequencer /dev/midi
tar -xf alsa-lib-xxx
tar -xf alsa-utils-xxx
modprobe snd-emu10k1;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss
Everything worked up to that last command. When I eneter it, I get:
FATAL: Error inserting snd_pcm_oss (/lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358/kernel/sound/acore/ oss/snd-pcm-oss.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
WARNING: Error inserting snd_seq (/lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358/kernel/sound/acore/se q/snd-seq.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
WARNING: Error inserting snd_seq_midi_event (/lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358/kernel/sou nd/acore/seq/snd-seq-midi-event.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parame ter (see dmesg)
FATAL: Error inserting snd_seq_oss (/lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358/kernel/sound/acore/ seq/oss/snd-seq-oss.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dme sg)
Someone suggested I try apt-get install alsamixer. Typed this in at the command line. I got a command not found error. Forgive me, but I'm guessing I misunderstood the usage of that. Anyway, it should also be noted that there is an onboard soundcard on my mo-bo that is disabled. This shouldn't effect anything right? I mean, FC2 does detect my SB Audigy, just won't play. I seem to be seeing lots of posts about this issue, but no solid solutions. Anyone interested in corrosponding real-time to try and hack through this problem, let me know. I'm willing to learn and help out in the process.
I'm having similar problems with my audigy sound card. I was able to get the test sound and cd's to play in xmms. I had to go into preferences in xmms and configure the plug-in for playing cd's from analog to digital. But i'm still unable to play ogg files using xmms or rhythmbox. Any ideas?
You can use gnome-volume-control and select ALSA Mixer settings and play around with the settings.Here is how one guy got it working;
Using Kernel 2.6.8-1.521
1.First I opened Volume control in “Systray” and ensured that all listed settings were unlocked.
2. Then I opened a terminal window from the Fedora/System Tools menu and typed su at the prompt.
3.Entered “root” password at the prompt.
4. typed “alsamixer” at the prompt and un-muted the following.
B. Audigy Analog/digital Output Jack
5. Increased the following to Max Settings
A. Audigy CD
B. Audigy Capture
H. PCM Center
I. PCM Surround
J. PCM Front
K. PCM LFE
6. It is unknown to me Whether it was necessary to set all of these to max or 100 per cent, but I did it.
7. Then I detected sound card and played the test sound and it worked.

thanks for the help... i was actually able to get my other two speakers (there are four) working. However, i still have the same problem. I can play the test sound, and i can play cd's through xmms (not cd player) but i can't play ogg files... very weird
