Sound Issues Fedora 8


I just installed a new verison of Fedora 8 64 bit edition off a live DVD. I have no sound though and would like to fix that. My Sound is OnBoard and not an external card, Fedora is recognizing it according to the soundcard detection application under system. Any help with this matter would be nice, my linux skills are still somewhat limited as I have used MS most my life, wish to try Linux but this no sound is a severe setback for me. I like the stability i have had with ubuntu and Fedora seems stable (so far) but no sound Thanks in advance.

i dont use yum but I do know it is admin program that does everything on your fc8. from putting new programs. but if you want to use a ternimal open one type alsa then tap the tab key and you will see all the commands to configure your card and mixer this must be done as root. I think in a terminal you type yumgui
