No sound in FC4, OS reconizes sound card though.

I have a PCI sound card which is Cirrus Logic CS 4614/22/44 Crystal Clear Sound Fusion Audio Accelerator. Linux found the card and installed the default drivers, but nothing comes out of the speakers even when they are turned up. If I boot into Windows XP Professional, the sound works great so the hardware works fine. Any sujestions? Is there a dedicate linux driver download/update list? Please and thank you all!

So... ok, lets see. First of all what DE are you using? Second, and please don't take this as a joke or something else but... have you checked your volume levels? No, really, check'em you'd be surprised how many people has the same problem and the solution was to turn the volume settings on. Sometimes by default all audio channels are muted.

If you use ALSA, you can use the command "alsamixer" from the terminal to change volume levels. [Tab] switches Playback/capture, [m] mutes/unmetes and [space] activates/deactivates.

I had the same problem with my SB Audigy 2 and the only thing I had to 'configure' was the digital/analog output switch; this setting is digital by default and in my case should be analog.

Just right-click on the speaker-icon in the desktop-panel and open the settings/preferences, there should be a tab where this switch can be changed.

Good Luck

I have exactly the same problem with Fedora 4 and Fedora core 3 . i have a onboard sound card and a external cirruslogic cs4281 . it shows the external cs4281 as the primary audio device but it actually outputs through the onboard intel one , please check urself for the same problem if u have a onboard sound card . i think ur fc4 is using the onboard sound card (if you have one) .
