Care to elaborate on that? Sound card make? Use lspci and then paste the results, it'll go a long way in helping you out

Does the system detect your soundcard?Try the soundcard detection utility:System Settings >> Soundcard Detection in the English menu setup.Or use the terminal for config-soundcard or try to insmod the related modules.If the card gets detected,try to see whether it plays the test sound.
Again,you ought'ta specify a bit more,whether you have a PCI card or an onboard one.Problems could of a myriad nature.Better if you post your error logs.

Soundcard detection in Fedora

Hello,

After a lot of time spent with the sound settings in KDE, my soundcard (a Soundblaster PCI64 / Ensoniq1370) finally works.

But to get it to work I have to do a soundcard detection just after I login to KDE. Even though I don't hear the music sample, I reply "yes" to "did you year the sample sound" and everything seems to work fine (I finally hear the sound sample after I logoff).

Is there a way to do the soundcard detection automatically ?

Check whether ALSA packages are correctly installed.Try to modprobe your soundcard at the console.If this doesn't help,try to edit the modprobe.conf to include your soundcard.
Anyway,a soundblaster should be autodetected.Check whether you have the same problem with GNOME.If you do,you gotta check if you have missed installing some packages or dependencies.If not,then try reinstalling KDE modules.

yes sorry for that was my last post before going to bed =)

My sound card is a sound Creatives Sound blaster live 5.1(PCI). I had it working before for a short time but had to re-install linux. After doing this i have not been able to get my sound card to work at all. I have tried the auto detect and it does find the sound card however i dont hear the test sound or do i have any sound after if i try to hit yes.

Check the mute button in aumix!! It might be checked up.It might sound foolish but is the cause of most soundcard "troubles".

Here is what I have in my /etc/modprobe.conf file :

alias sound-slot-0 snd-ens1370
install snd-ens1370 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-ens1370 && /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-ens1370 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-ens1370
alias usb-controller uhci-hcd

Is it correct to have a remove after an install ???

Hold on,

Mooshi in this thread :

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=185411

...gave an information on how to use aumix.

It actually solved my problem !

Now I run a script with the initialization of KDE that calls aumix to set the PCM volumes to a non-zero value.

Thanks.
