Red face Fedora 8 refuses to detect my Live 5.1 soundcard..!!


[Solved: Problem not with Fedora not recognizing the soundcard but the buggy PulseAudio]

Hi All,

Just installed a fresh Fedora8 with all the plugins and codecs, but the sound is not working. It shows always muted in the panel and I can't configure it. However the soundcard detection configuration detects it and even plays the sound there but the systemwide sound is off, no video/audio players are opening up, some do open but without any sound. This soundcard works perfectly fine in previous versions of Fedora.

What could be the problem? The card is a Creative Live! 5.1

Help
Thanks.

Ok, apparently found the solution here.

Not sure if this is permanent, maybe the future updates will break it in time.

Haven't figured out the PulseAudio Volume Control crashing though, I run it, it exits, everytime
